Using the other guy's toolkit: Similarities of pumping blood, oil examined
Date:12/2/2008

mbranes and filters, and the use of nanotechnology across both industries, as well as other topics with potential crossover. Attendees will include imaging specialists, computer scientists, physicists, engineers, geologists, vascular biologists, researchers from medical device manufacturers, and clinicians and researchers specializing in cardiovascular disease.

"All our fields rely on constant innovation, which requires diversity of thought," said William E. Kline, manager of the Wells and Materials Division at ExxonMobil Upstream Research Co. "That's why the opportunity to rummage around in 'the other guy's toolkit' is so exciting."

Program directors from the co-hosting organizations are Lumsden, Kline and Ioannis Kakadiaris, Eckhard Pfeiffer Professor of Computer Science at UH. Among the 18 presenters, these three will kick off the conference with lectures titled "My Medical Toolkit," "My Oilfield Toolkit" and "My Engineering Toolkit," respectively. UH System Chancellor and UH President Renu Khator will provide the welcoming remarks.

"Last year, our first Pumps & Pipes conference was designed to provide a high-level overview of similar technologies that exist in the energy industry and medicine, revealing fertile areas for synergy that include materials science, innovative mechanical systems, imaging, robotics, flow assurance, chemical technologies and various monitoring and modeling techniques," Kakadiaris said. "Ultimately, we would like this forum to identify and promote better technologies that may have never been considered if not for the ideas sparked by our discussions and interactions. We're seeking tools from each sector that could have complementary applications, ranging from modifications of existing equipment or practices to visionary, out-of-the-box paradigm shifts."
