Our workshop’s second day was led off by two outstanding
presenters. We mentioned Stan Wong’s presentation on
the Academic Interview Process. The second was delivered
by Dr. Kimberley Elcess on Technology Commercialization
Dr. Elcess provided a nice change of pace for the audience
incorporating a delightful series of stories about how she
got to where she is– PhD, post doc, strategic management
consultant, MBA, registered Patent Agent, and involved at
BNL’s office for technology commercialization.

of the new patents law and patent office regulations.
