Speaker Biography (David P Brown)

It has always been Dr. Brown's belief that important innovations should be commercialized to the benefit of society and he has avidly promoted the link between basic research and broad application.
He is the CTO, VP of Business Development and co-founder of Canatu, a Fulbright Fellow (atmospheric physics) and a co-founder and former CEO of Canatu, Teicos Pharma (formulation of pharmaceuticals for delivery to the lungs), Particle Stream Technologies Inc. (advanced pharmaceutical powders) and StreamWise (computer simulation of gas/particle systems) and StreamWise Finland (optical fiber manufacturing technology).
He has more than 180 scientific articles, 180 granted and pending patents and 100 invited talks on, for instance, entrepreneurship, nanotechnology, carbon nanotubes and NanoBuds, synthesis of nanomaterials, drug delivery and nano-formulations, nuclear safety, atmospheric physics and modeling and algorithms for designing and characterizing materials and chemically reacting aerosol processes. He has also worked as an advisor and independent contractor for many important technology players including Honda, Du Pont, Daikin, Kemira, NASA, the Finnish National Research Centre and the Paul Scherrer Institute.

Company Profile (Canatu)

Canatu logo
Canatu is a leading manufacturer of transparent conductive films for an entirely new class of touch applications. Canatu's CNB™ films are based on a new type of carbon nanomaterial (Carbon NanoBud®), and a new Roll-to-Roll manufacturing process (Direct Dry Printing®), which combines the synthesis of the Carbon NanoBuds directly from carbon gases and direct deposition to the substrate in one single process. Canatu offers its customers in consumer electronics and automotive industry next level of design freedom with its innovative technologies.
