Popularity of the Whiteboard2Boardroom Webinar Series Continues

The September 2020 Whiteboard2Boardroom webinar presented two technologies available for licensing from our partner institutions. The first, a Pandemic Tent developed by physicians at the University of Kansas Medical Center. The Pandemic Tent is a novel, portable, single-patient negative pressure environment with pathogen-filtration to mitigate aerosolization. It is small, and lightweight while in packaging with a long shelf life. Pandemic Tent provides a rapid and affordable way to produce a negative pressure environment enabling triage and emergent critical care procedures and preventing pathogens from entering and spreading in a facility and keeping healthcare workers safe. The team will be seeking capital for Contagion Solutions to assist in moving the product to market.

The second presentation addressed the fast-growing Internet of Things (IOT), which is facing significant security and scalability challenges. Edge computing addresses scalability and provides various benefits. A technology developed by researchers at the University of Missouri-St. Louis relates to the resources-management system of a computing network, addressing the ‘weak’ and ‘vulnerable’ aspects of the ever-increasing number of IoT devices located on the edge of the network. This is done by leveraging proven, industrial-grade technologies such as smart contracts and blockchain, which provides a both secure and flexible means of protecting data. The University seeks to work with a commercial partner and real-world data from which a use case will be developed to give the technology context in the application of choice. The technology can be the basis of a new startup or licensed to an established company.
