EmTech@MIT 2009

I wish I could be there. Some really exciting discussions will take place this year at EmTech (Emerging Technologies) at MIT. Maybe I'll get a chance to go next year and cover the meeting as a blogger.

As always, some of the topics this year revolve around healthcare issues and the world of biotechnology and medical advances. One of the hot topics revolves around the DNA-based universal flu vaccine. Technology Review has written a story about this novel concept. Dr. J. Joseph Kim and his team at Inovio are working on this vaccine technology and I'm eager to see it on the market.

I sure miss Boston and those MIT days. It's just not the same when you're watching a webcast from home.
