This session will focus on research and technology, where we have been and where we are headed. Learn more about Jordan Valley Innovation Center (JVIC), a place where Missouri State University researchers and corporate partners are conducting cutting-edge research and development in a collaborative environment.

The expeditious and trailblazing spirit embedded deep in the core of Missourians continues to flourish through our inventions and entrepreneurs today. At Brewer Science and the MSU Jordan Valley Innovation Center, the evidence of this spirit is strong and will be needed to address the challenges of our future world.

Two technology leaders will share their perspectives based on past research and opportunities for the future. Brewer Science, a JVIC Corporate Partner, is led by Dr. Terry Brewer. Dr. Brewer will discuss some transformation technologies, including the impacts of micro, printed, and flexible electronics; advanced materials design; and innovative corporate structures that will be driving our future.

The Center for Biomedical and Life Sciences at the Jordan Valley Innovation Center is led by Dr. Paul Durham. Dr. Durham will share research on emerging therapies for treating orofacial pain conditions, including new pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and alternative therapeutic options for managing acute and chronic pain to transform human health.
