A number of different engineering faculty from the Jacobs School presented this week at the La Jolla Research and Innovation Summit. According to the event organizers, the summit is:

" invitation only program where San Diego’s leading scientists and engineers describe their innovative research to more than 100 venture capitalists in a closed meeting was developed to bring together our leading scientists with active venture capitalists from across the U.S. In this unique setting, VCs have the opportunity to learn from and build relationships with researchers working
on advances five and ten years into the future."

Jacobs School professors who presented are below:

Joseph Ford, Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC San Diego (Bruce Lieberman from Xconomy included Ford's solar concentrator technology in Xconomy summit his write up. Graduate student Jason Karp will present related solar concentrator work on April 15 at the Jacobs School of Engineering Research Expo 2010. It's THE place to connect with the engineering innovators and leaders of today (and tomorrow).

William Gerwick, Professor, Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego and Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, UC San Diego (Computer science professor Pavel Pevzner works with Gerwick on related projects. Read more about the collaboration aimed at discovering drug targets from natural compounds here.)

The High Tech/IT Panel Presentation was a Jacobs School sweep:

Sadik Esner, Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC San Diego

Rajesh Gupta, Professor and Qualcomm Endowed Chair, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, UC San Diego

Stefan Savage, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, UC San

(Graduate students from the labs of Esner, Gupta and Savage are all presenting at Research Expo 2010.)

The afteroon session included a political scientist from UC San Diego who is affiliated with Calit2...yes, you guessed the name right: James Fowler, Author, Connected; Associate Professor, Center for Wireless and Population Health Systems, CALIT2, and Department of Political Science, UC San Diego.
