  • "Sense-HER: A Low-Cost, Electronic Breast Cancer Gene Detection System," R.D. Gomez and Konrad Aschenbach, both of the department of electrical and computer engineering;
  • "Manipulation of Guard Cells: Drought-Tolerant Plants for Feeding the World's Hungry," June Kwak, assistant professor in the department of cell biology amd molecular genetics;
  • "Cold Adapted/Temperature Sensitive Live Attenuated Avian Influenza Vaccines for Poultry, Livestock, and Humans," Daniel Perez, associate professor in the department of veterinary medicine; and
  • "Super Fiber for Human Health," Lucy Yu, professor in the department of nutrition and food science.

    The annual Biotechnology Research and Technology Review Day Professor Venture Fair is hosted by the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), the Office of Technology Commercialization, and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences. The pitch competition encourages scientists to consider the commercial potential of their work and challenges them to translate their ideas to a general, non-technical audience.

    This year's Professor Venture Fair was sponsored by the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO).

    Both past winners in the fair's relatively brief, three-year history have gone on to create successful start-up companies. Last year's winner, Matt Dowling, had already started Remedium Technologies in 2007, and the company, now in the Mtech VentureAccelerator Program, continues to develop its Velcro-like biomaterial bandages.

    Lawrence Sita, the 2007 winner, started Precision Polyolefins, a company that could revolutionize the plastics industry by introducing a clean alternative to existing methods of plastics production.

    "Investors can find it difficult to navigate the wealth of research at universities to pinpoint a major market winner," says Dean Chang, director of Mtech's venture and
