Metadata[+] Show full item record
This presentation opens with a brief review of the Consortium for Bone and Tissue Repair and Regeneration which is a collaborative research program between faculty in the Dental School at UMKC and the materials programs at MS&T. This intercampus consortium is developing advanced bioactive glasses and investigating their use for repairing traumatized bone and tissue. The latter part of this presentation discusses entrepreneurship and the locations of creative activity (patents) in Missouri, and closes with a case study of how research at MS&T was successfully spun off to create a health care business.
