Purdue licenses baby monitor to Indy company

The Purdue Research Foundation will license technology to an Indianapolis company that provides doctors with a more advanced way to take vital signs of premature infants.

The announcement will be made during a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday (1/8) in the atrium of the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. The atrium is located in the hospital's Wishard Drive main entrance, and parking is available across the street at the Wilson Street garage. Directions are available on the Web.

Speakers will include Joseph Hornett, senior vice president and treasurer of the Purdue Research Foundation; a representative from the company chosen to commercialize the technology; and Anne Shane, project manager for the Central Indiana Life Sciences Initiative.

Following the news conference, a tour of the hospital's neonatal unit will provide journalists with photo and video opportunities, as well an opportunity to interview parents of premature infants.
