Several ERC students were part of the team from Boston University selected as finalists in a $50k New Venture Competition. They will present their business plan for start-up “NexGen Arrays” to develop next-generation microarray slides that provide increased sensitivity for fluorescent assays, and allow label-free mass density measurements. Three prizes will be awarded on April 4, 2012, with first place winning $50,000. (http://www.bu.edu/itec/events/50k-competition/)
