Event Details


You are cordially invited to join us for the second in our NanoBio Executive Roundtable series. These events offer executives and entrepreneurs of North Carolina-based nanobiotechnology companies and others involved in this exciting field an opportunity to discuss key business issues and build relationships.






5:15 pm        Registration opens


5:30-5:35      Welcome comments, Brooks Adams, Executive Director, COIN


5:35-6:00      JSNN facilities, academic offerings, and opportunities for collaboration, Dean Jim Ryan

James G. Ryan, a professor and researcher with 47 U.S. patents, became the founding dean of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) in July 2008. The JSNN is a collaborative project of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. As founding dean, Ryan has guided the JSNN’s creation, from the hiring of its faculty to the design of its building at the South Campus of the Gateway University Research Park.  Many in COIN’s community are curious to visit JSNN to learn more about its progress and offerings.


6:00-6:25       The Nanomaterial Registry, Michele Ostraat, PhD, RTI International

Dr. Ostraat, Senior Director, RTI International, will talk about a project she is leading to establish a Nanomaterial Registry.  The registry is being designed to facilitate data validation and data quality improvement of nanomaterials; enhance the development of new models, assays, standards, and manufacturing methods; and accelerate the translation of new nanomaterials for biomedical and environmental applications.  The project is federally-funded; partnering organizations include the NIH, National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, NIEHS, and the NCI.  RTI will work with industry groups, standards organizations and government agencies to develop and validate the registry.

Ostraat joined RTI in 2008 and as Senior Director of the Center for Aerosol Technology.  She manages a wide range of research on aerosol technology and nanotechnology platforms, two key growth areas for RTI.  Ostraat also works to commercialize technologies developed by the research team.


6:25-6:30              Introduction of Roundtable sponsors, Jim Roberts, Director, COIN


6:30-7:30              Networking reception with hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, and soft drinks




The Joint School for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) is located at Gateway University Research Park South Campus in the USDA Building adjacent to the construction site of the new JSNN building.  The Gateway Park is conveniently located on Lee Street a stone’s throw off I-40 / Business I-85 just East of Greensboro.  It is centrally located, for example, only a 45-minute drive from downtown Durham and about the same from Winston-Salem.
