LITE Seminar - From Ideas to
Ventures [Tue Dec 2, 1pm]
From Ideas to Ventures Speaker:
Suresh Shenoy, IMC, Inc.
Tuesday, December 2, 2014 from Time: 1pm
to 2pm Location:
Nguyen Engineering Building,
Room 4801, Fairfax Campus
Shenoy served as Chairman of
the National Capital Region chapter of the American
Cross and on the boards of Kevric Company, IMC Global Services,
County Information Technology Advisory Committee, Capital IIT
Association and Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce. Prior to joining
Mr. Shenoy was a partner at Maridyne International, an international
company and joint venture with Marubeni Corporation of
After selling Maridyne, Mr. Shenoy owned and operated Northeast
Castings. Currently, he is an adjunct faculty in the School of
George Mason University. Mr. Shenoy holds a Bachelor’s degree in
from the Indian Institute of Technology and an MBA from the
a new venture is an
exciting and challenging experience at the same time.
entrepreneurs will need thorough planning, discipline, and a keen
to adapt to a constantly changing environment. Mr. Shenoy will provide
overview of the key steps needed to successfully plan, launch, and
new venture. Some of these key elements include developing an
the industry and the competitive environment, evaluating the
your idea, assessing market forces, and the importance of
effective business plan.

Prof. Jorabchi’s work has focused on molecular mass spectrometry
analysis in a variety of applications from explosive detection and
analysis to bio-analytical measurements.
droplets (e.g. water droplets in oil) provide an isolated
chemical, biochemical, and biological investigations. Small
volumes of micro-droplets
dramatically reduce the use of solvents, reagents, and precious
as enzymes. Moreover, discrete droplets can be used to encapsulate
cells, providing a new experimental window to cellular processes
single-cell level. To enable these studies, our work is focused on
methods for controlling the chemical composition of the droplets,
spectrometric methods for analysis of discrete droplet contents.
presentation, we will discuss our new reagent delivery method
based on partial
injection of reagent droplets into a reactant droplet, providing a
small volume injection using large droplets. Partial injections as
0.003% of the reagent droplet are achieved with this method,
enabling pL volume
injections using nL droplets. We will also discuss a pneumatically
single-droplet electrospray developed for the mass spectrometric
droplets as small as 50um in diameter.
