Steve Renfro, a senior manager at Los Alamos National Laboratory is the president and chief executive officer of Surya Suncare. The company is fielding a patent-pending sunscreen based on advances in nanotechnology.
Vital Alert Technology is the U.S. wing of a Canadian company that has had an office at the Research Park in Los Alamos since mid-2006, where engineers have been working on an underground radio technology.
Vital Alert’s communication devices were inspired by critical shortcomings in conventional radio frequency communications, highlighted during the Sago mining disaster in West Virginia in early January 2006, when 13 miners lost their lives after an underground explosion.
Michael Erickson, a LANL licensing executive in the Tech Transfer Division, has been working with both companies.
