Our 5th annual Technology Roundtable conference featuring innovative cutting edge discoveries and research in Biomedical Engineering (BME) from three organizations: Nagoya University and UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering.
The goals of the Technology Roundtable Series are (1) to highlight some of the main innovative cutting-edge research technologies with promising commercial potential from Nagoya University (NU) and participating local universities, and (2) to strengthen ties and networks among university and industry researchers, startups in RTP, and business development professionals from major and local biotech and plant/agriculture companies working in the research fields. NU expects these networks fostered via its Roundtables will lead to future research collaborations and licensing opportunities between academia and industry by which the technology seeds can be further developed to commercialization by both parties.

7. About Technology Roundtable Series
The Technology Roundtable series is one of the technology marketing efforts by Nagoya University (NU) and Technology Partnership of Nagoya University, Inc. (NU Tech), NU’s technology transfer office in the U.S., in cooperation with local universities in RTP. The first Roundtable was held on October 2010 in cooperation with North Carolina State University (NCSU), whose main topic was focused on Plant/Agriculture technology; the second was on October 2011 with University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and Wake Forest University Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), focusing on Regenerative Medicine; the 3rd Roundtable was on October 2012 in cooperation with NCSU, UNC-CH and WFIRM, focusing on Diagnostics and Molecular Therapeutics; and the 4th Roundtable was held on October 2013, focusing on Crop Science and Biotechnology in corporation with Duke University, NCSU and UNC-CH and brought 150 participants.
NU Tech’s Roundtable aims to bridge the gap and strengthen networks and relations among university researchers, entrepreneurs and startups in RTP, and business representatives from major and local healthcare and Life science companies, by showcasing cutting edge technologies from Nagoya University and local universities in North Carolina.
