Materials Research Science and Engineering Center
Spreading MRSEC Technology Internationally
to Create New High-tech Jobs at Home

The Harvard MRSEC actively promotes tech transfer to commercialize Center discoveries to create new jobs for scientists and engineers. Demand for MRSEC-inspired inventions is both national and international. Here David Weitz gives a keynote address at the 39th International Australasian Cytometry Societies conference in Sydney, Australia in November 2016 and runs several hands-on demonstration sessions featuring new MRSEC discoveries that enable single-cell sequencing. Such presentations create demand for these technologies. To address this demand a startup company, 1Cell-Bio, in Cambridge, MA develops and manufactures devices that are sold worldwide. This leads directly to creation of new jobs and economic growth in the nation.
