Florida's first statewide technology transfer conference is expected to draw about 400 people to the St. Petersburg Hilton on May 17 and 18.

Sponsored by the Florida Research Consortium and the Tampa Bay Technology Forum, the sessions are geared to match ongoing research at 12 Florida universities with investment groups and companies that might back commercial applications.

The focus is on "breakthrough" information technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology. Scheduled presentations include pharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostic devices, drug delivery system, bio-informatics, microelectromechanical systems and Homeland Security applications.

Speakers include Charles Linzner, general counsel for business development at Bristol Myers Squibb, and Brian Hutchinson, chief executive of Regeneration Technologies Inc., a Gainesville company that makes implants and tissue sterilization equipment.

Advance conference registration costs $245 for forum members, $295 for nonmembers. More information is available on the conference's Web site (
