Dynamic Biosensors Based on Technology Co-developed by Fujitsu Laboratories and Technische Universitaet Muenchen Awarded at Munich Business Plan Competition
- Runner-up in Full Business Plan category -
A business plan for revolutionary biosensor technology co-developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and Technische Universitaet Muenchen, ("TUM", Walter Schottky Institute) won second place in the Full Business Plan category of the Munich Business Plan Competition 2010, of 253 teams entered overall. In record time and with high accuracy, the biosensors recognize proteins that are characteristic of specific diseases, and also show if such proteins are changed through the influence of disease or drugs. With support from Fujitsu Laboratories, a start-up team at TUM will be commercializing the biosensors through the EXIST research transfer program run by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. The award underscores the high level of anticipation for this completely novel protein measuring technology, and its commercial potential in the fields of medical diagnosis, drug development, and proteomics research.
Fujitsu Limited was awarded the Minister's Award from Japan's Ministry of Economics, Trade and Industry (METI), for the invention of chemically-amplified photoresist, a semiconductor-related material that is exposed to form the circuit pattern of leading-edge large-scale integrated circuits (LSIs). As a world first and essential semiconductor material invented by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., Fujitsu Limited, and Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited, Fujitsu's chemically-amplified photoresist features high-sensitivity and high-resolution characteristics that enable it to be used in the manufacture of 90nm- to 32nm-generation advanced LSIs, paving the way for mobile electronic devices that are more compact and higher in functionality and performance than currently available.
Dr. Kenichi Miura, a fellow of Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and director of the Center for Grid Research and Development at Japan's National Institute of Informatics (NII), has been awarded the 2009 Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), for recognition of his leadership in developing the foundational technology for vector supercomputer hardware and software. The Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award - one of the IEEE's most prestigious awards and established in honor of Seymour Cray, a pioneer in supercomputer development - is presented to individuals who have innovatively contributed to the development of high-performance computing systems. Fujitsu plans to build upon the supercomputer technology pioneered by Dr. Miura to develop world-class supercomputers, including Japan's Next-Generation Supercomputer.
