POEM Annual Review
The annual review for the Princeton Center for Photonics
and Optoelectronic Materials (POEM) will focus on biotechnology, particularly
bioterrorism suppression. It will launch the new Center for Molecular
and Biomolecular Imaging, partly supported by the New Jersey Commission
on Science and Technology, and expected to support new technologies
for environmental, security, and medical applications. It is the first
in a statewide series developed in cooperation with the committee
on SMART NJ (Strengthening the Mid-Atlantic Region for Tomorrow).
POEM’s review takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 29 and
30, at Princeton University. Cost: $250, but less with advanced registration
(until October 25). Register and find more information at www.poem.princeton.edu.
"Many of the spectacular achievements of 20th century science
followed the same simple paradigm," says
Princeton University’s director of industrial liaison. "As new
directions in basic atomic or molecular physics matured, they were
adopted by chemists and applied physicists. This work in turn enabled
applications in biological, clinical, and environmental science."
The first session, beginning on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m., is "Advances
in Molecular and Biomolecular Imaging." Panelists include
Richter of Princeton, who speaks on Functional Magnetic Resonance
in Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Princeton University president
at the luncheon, at noon, followed by U.S. Senator
who speaks on "Security through Technology."
A workshop on "Enabling Technologies for Bioterrorism Suppression"
takes place in the afternoon. Panelists include
of Princeton, who speaks on Understanding Moral Decision Making by
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging;
A&M, who speaks on Novel Approaches to Biological Agent Detection;
Bug to Drug Identification and Counter Measures, and
of EluSys, who speaks on Immunity Enhancement Systems.
Speakers at a 7 p.m. dinner at Prospect House include
Montemarano of POEM, who speaks on Bringing Companies to Princeton
on Homeland Defense Issues and Anti-Bioterrorism Commercialization
The keynote speech, given at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, October 30, by
Tesoriero of the New Jersey Council on Science and Technology is
"The Impact of NJ Commission on Science and Technology Investments."
At the Wednesday morning session, beginning at 9:30 a.m., speakers
Proteins on Surfaces for Applications in Enzyme Screening and Cell
in Gene Diagnostics; and
on The New NJCST Center on Organic OptoElectronics.
speaks on Sensors Unlimited: A Princeton Success Story.
of Nanotechnology to Energetic Systems at the luncheon, at 12:30 p.m.
At the afternoon session, beginning at 2:30 p.m., speakers include
speaks on All-optical Processing in Future Ultrafast Networks; and
Hard on the heels of the October 30 discussions of nanotechnology
will come another conference in which that science — the manipulation
of material at the atomic or molecular level — plays an important
part. The second annual Emerging Information Technology Conference
is geared to promote collaboration between scientists from the Pacific
Rim and North America. It will be held on Friday and Saturday, November
1 and 2, at 9 a.m. at Princeton University’s Friend Center on Olden
Avenue. Cost: $90. Call 212-752-2340 or go to www.eitc.org.
of Columbia all discuss nanotechnology on Friday. Also to be covered
are MEMS, bioinformatics, and system-on-chip (SOC). On Saturday the
bioinformatics speakers include
Zheng of Lucent will speak on MEMS, and
IBM T.J. Watson Research Center on System on Chip (SoC). Among the
