Have a "problem?" Want to fabricate a solution? Fab@CIC offers the tools and resources to create your own custom prototypes and designs. During this open meetup, Fab@CIC's resident experts can share their guidance on how you could use 3D printers, laser cutters and PCB circuit boards for your own projects. If you tell us your "problem" ahead of time, we'll try to match you with the best contributor in our network. Or, come and talk to the experts and learn what these machines can do.
Projects made in Fab@CIC include a "bicycle piano," custom programmed LED light strips, laser-cut parts for drone prototypes, battery packs for wearables, vinyl signage, custom sized tool boxes, funky sunglasses, and more. We're excited to hear what you want to make and see how we can help!
Please bring your laptop, curiosity, and any documentation you may want to share. See you there!

The National Cancer Institute Small Business Innovation Research (NCI SBIR) Development Center is coming back to Cambridge! Program directors Michael Weingarten, Andy Kurtz, and Ashim Subedee will be presenting funding opportunities and other resources for startups in cancer technology. You will also learn about twelve new targeted funding opportunities in cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment in high priority areas of research for the NCI. Although the trends reflect improvements in cancer treatments and advances in technology have led to better tools for understanding, detecting, and diagnosing cancer, we still have work to do. In 2017, an estimated 1,688,780 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States. The NCI is poised to reduce the burden of cancer in this country and around the world at an accelerated pace.

Technology is disrupting the financial services landscape in profound ways, necessitating immediate transformation from financial institutions. Transactions that were once dominated by physical money, human interaction, or long lines at banks are now commonly executed through digital interfaces, despite the burdensome regulation and privacy concerns that persist in the financial space.
To discuss these topics and more, Argyle Executive Forum is bringing together financial services executives at our annual 2017 Financial Services Forum: Marketing & Technology Innovation in Boston. Throughout a full day of content and networking, we will focus on the most pressing issues that marketing & technology executives are tackling within the financial services landscape, with a program geared specifically towards marketing, digital, technology, analytics and data executives.
As consumers, we want to know that the food we eat is safe and (in some cases, such as fine wines) that it’s provenance is authentic. We want to know with certainty that the gold, diamonds, and electronics we buy are not funding conflicts. And that the products we buy are not counterfeits. Supply chain managers want to track condition, location, and remove friction from global supply chains. Blockchain/ distributed ledger technology holds promise in solving these problems, with applications in socially responsible supply chains, traceability/provenance/chain-of-custody tracking, anticounterfiting, condition monitoring, customs and compliance, trade finance, and other areas that can benefit from a shared, immutable ledger.
Some of these have already been implemented, tracking millions of products; but most are still in development or pilot phase. However, the level of activity and investment is becoming intense and we expect rapid developments in this arena. In this session, we will hear from CEOs, founders, and technology experts at the companies on the forefront of this ongoing digital transformation of supply chain. You will learn:
What are the various opportunities of using blockchain in the supply chain, which hold the most potential, and what implementations are providing value right now?
How is or can blockchain be combined with other technologies, such as IoT, to tackle supply chain challenges in new ways?
What are the hurdles for widespread adoption?
You won’t want to miss this provocative and engaging session (including ample audience Q&A) with the leaders on the forefronts of these new developments.
