and diagnostics industries. We'll look back at 2009 as our coming out

Since Dr. Michelle Khine, the scientific founder of Shrink's nanofabrication
platform, was named by the MIT Technology Review Magazine as one of the top
35 global innovators under the age of 35, Shrink has been in the media spotlight,
garnering several features in top-tier business, industry trade publications
and regional newspapers.
Most notably, Dr. Khine was profiled in Forbes.com as part of the online series
called the "Revolutionaries," describing her as the 'MacGyver' of
bioengineering by creating a quick and affordable way to manufacture medical
diagnostic chips. As she develops the technology, one area she hopes the chips
will flourish in is the detection of infectious diseases in developing countries,
where equipment, resources and trained personnel are often lacking. The company
and its technology were also featured in Equities Magazine, EETimes and numerous
other outlets including Carlsbad's regional newspapers North County Times
and Ventura County Star. Other notable mentions of Shrink, including some cover
