Prof Orest Blachuk of McGill University Dept. of Urology has racked up an impressive portfolio of patents and patent applications. He is cofounder of Adherex Technology and its scientific luminary. Adherex is on the path to some significant advances in cancer treatment prognoses.
MICROFAB ENGINEER - CMU '82 - Innovative & Pragmatic. Expert in fixing ANY microfab process problem - limiting yield or performance or R&D. Methodical expedient 6-Sigma focus in problem solving. A consistent track record, with notable yield & microfabrication process improvements for over 27years. Prepares with substantive literature and IP research when appropriate.
Example Case - ID'ing root cause & fix to a 3yr old wafer fab IC part in volume production, after IDing cause & fix to -20% fab-wide crash. After IDing low yield cause in 2hrs, tripled IC part’s fab yield in 2mos.
Additionally enjoys device/ process inventing & R&D.
