  • Entrepreneur-in-Residence
    “Entrepreneur-in-Residence” is a new program at BUnano. Dr. Jill Becker is the inaugural EiR. Dr. Becker is an accomplished entrepreneur and business woman who has successfully started a company (Cambridge NanoTech Inc ) grew its sales, and sold it to Ultratech Inc, a public semiconductor company. At BUnano she will catalyze the technology to venture process: advise and work with BU faculty, students, and postdoctoral fellows interested in translating their technology to the marketplace. Currently, Jill is CEO and Founder of 02139 Inc., a consulting company with a heavy focus on accelerating growth, maximizing value and the creation of jobs in a variety of industries and translating innovations into tangible commercial success.
  • Cancer Care for Engineers and Scientists
    BUnano’s Cancer Care for Engineers and Scientists (CCES) conference was developed to educate scientists and engineers about key concepts in clinical cancer care, including current controversies and areas of need. The conference was held annually from 2010-2013.  Its goal was to provide a basis of knowledge to inspire scientists to work with cancer researchers and clinicians to advance our understanding of cancer and to develop diagnostic, therapeutic, and imaging tools.   Videos from past conferences are available here.
