Hoboken, N.J. -- Dr. Helena S. Wisniewski, Vice President for University Research & Enterprise Development at Stevens Institute of Technology, will host the second in a series of monthly "Disruptive Technologies Roundtables" at Stevens. The luncheon will discuss Stevens Proof of Concept (SPOC), a biomedical technology application for muscle pain detection, on July 26, 2006, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the 14th Floor Board Room of The Wesley J. Howe
Center, two blocks east of Washington and 8th Streets in Hoboken. Lunch will be served and members of the media are welcome to attend.
The program is a by-invitation roundtable discussion about a revolutionary product that eliminates unnecessary surgery by finding the overlooked source of back and neck pain. The product, recently featured on CBS TV and Eyewitness News, is the basis for the Technogenesis start-up company, SPOC, LLC. The presentation will include discussions of the technology, the applications, and the business case and demonstration (see Company Executive Summary below).
Each month will focus on a different Stevens' technology that either is ready for commercialization, or is the basis of a Technogenesis start-up company.
"Invited representatives from the investment community and industry will have the opportunity to receive a first-hand look at the technology, meet the inventors, and discuss their assessment of the technology's potential in the marketplace," said Wisniewski. "Our intention is to provide a forum for networking and promoting interaction among industry, the investment community, and the university, leading to joint innovation and enterprise."
