BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Woodrow "Woody" Maggard, associate vice provost of the University at Buffalo Office of Science, Technology Transfer and Economic Outreach (STOR), will be the presenter June 15 at the UB Alumni Association's final spring "UB at Sunrise Downtown" breakfast series in the Hyatt Regency, 2 Fountain Plaza.

The event will begin with a continental breakfast at 7:30 a.m. The presentation will start at 8 a.m. and conclude promptly at 9 a.m. following a question-and-answer period.

STOR is UB's interface between the inventive work of laboratory research and the applied commercial development that brings the benefits of that work to market. STOR is building a 21st-century economy for the Buffalo-Niagara region based on bioscience and information technology. It promotes economic revitalization through technology transfer and economic outreach activities, and fosters partnerships between UB -- New York's major public research university -- and the business community.

STOR's three divisions -- intellectual property, funding and commercialization -- provide business leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs with easy access to UB's extensive resources and expertise.

The cost of the breakfast presentation is $12 per person and $10 per person for UB Alumni Association members. Reservations may be made by calling the UB Office of Alumni Relations at (716) 829-2608 or 1-800-284-5382 by June 11.
