Cape Cod Technology Council’s April First Friday Breakfast will host Dr. Yuki Honjo, Chief Operating Officer of McLane Research Laboratories.  Dr. Honjo will speak on the importance of teamwork and collaboration between industry and academia in furthering advances in Ocean Sciences. Research in the ocean has immense and unique challenges, and this talk will touch on the turning points in technology that have changed the way we see the world today. McLane’s experience in technology transfers and the collaboration between public and private interests has allowed the company to be on the bleeding edge of ocean sciences. McLane is a small high tech manufacturing oceanographic company located in Falmouth since 1983. They build in-situ time series robots for research in some of the most challenging aquatic environments on Earth.

Cape Cod Technology Council’s President Bert Jackson said, “McLane is a key example of entrepreneurs collaborating with our research centers of excellence to build sustainable economic growth in our region.”

Dr. Yuki Allyson Honjo is McLane’s owner and Chief Operating Officer. A proud native of Falmouth (she was born at Falmouth Hospital and attended Falmouth schools), she spent the better half of her life abroad before happily returning to the Cape in 2009.

Yuki holds an honors degree from Harvard University, a doctorate from the University of Oxford, and has also studied at the University of Tokyo. She is fluent in Japanese.

The breakfast will be held at 7:30 am on April 7 at the Hyannis Golf Club on Route 132 in Hyannis.  It is part of the monthly First Friday Breakfast series, produced by the Cape Cod Technology Council.

The Cape Cod Technology Council is a member organization driving technology innovation, education and policy for the Cape Cod Region.
