July 13 Reception Will Celebrate Major Milestones at One-Year Mark

Industry Thought Leaders Embrace NanoBioNexus

San Diego, CA | June 29, 2005

NanoBioNexus, Inc., a non-profit forum for business, networking and partnering opportunities in nanobiotechnology, celebrates its first anniversary and announces the continuing support of founding sponsor, Morrison and Foerster LLP. The significant milestones reached by the organization have also attracted new support and sponsorship including Duke Scientific Corporation; Buchanan Ingersoll LLP including attorneys from Burns Doane Swecker & Mathis; Veracast Communications; Rudolph and Sletten; Summit Financial Group; BayCreative; Biotech Vendor Services, Inc.; and ScienceMedia.

“I’m very pleased with the milestones we’ve achieved as an organization in our first year of operation,” commented Adriana Vela, Founder and Chair of NanoBioNexus (NBN). “Our programs are well attended and our partnership with the business community continues to expand. We were honored to receive an invitation to participate in a grant application from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and we’re currently in discussions with several major scientific publishers that are interested in acquiring the NanoBioNexus News content for ongoing columns.”

The industry supports and continues to validate the unique value NBN brings to the local life science community as well as their national and international nanobiotech constituency. NBN’s expertise led to an invitation to join the UCSD Cancer Center, The Burnham Institute, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara and others in a $20.5 million grant application for the creation of a Cancer Center of Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) in San Diego. The NCI made a significant commitment to nanotechnology research for cancer and set aside a total of $144.3 million for the formation of five CCNE’s nationwide. NBN will head the educational component of this grant.

“Before NanoBioNexus formed in San Diego, there was a great deal of interest in nanotech but no central point of knowledge or contact,” commented Tyler Orion, CEO of San Diego’s Regional Technology Alliance. “NBN mobilized thought leaders in nanotechnology and quickly became a central resource for knowledge and networking.”

The NBN organization continues to grow internally and has been fortified by a newly named Board of Directors: Aileen Alvarado-Swaisgood, Ph.D., MBA, Founder, Molecular Alliance; James T. Clements, MBA, Principal and VP Business Development, NanoSciences, Inc.; Alan S. Paau, PhD, Assistant Vice Chancellor, UCSD Tech Transfer Office; Philip Reilly, JD, PhD, Director of Legal Affairs, Macusight, Inc.; and Adriana Vela, Founder & Chair, NanoBioNexus, Inc.

A special “NanoBioNexus Anniversary and Reception Gala” celebrating the milestones of the past year will be held July 13 at the Salk Institute in La Jolla from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event provides an excellent opportunity for attendees to spend quality time networking with business and scientific leaders.
