Software Company Hires World Renowned Scientist
Nanorex, a molecular engineering software company, named Dr. K. Eric Drexler as the company's Chief Technical Advisor. Dr. Drexler will play a leading role in shaping Nanorex's product strategy and advancing the company's academic outreach programs.
"We are very excited to have Dr. Drexler join our team," said Mark Sims, President and founder of Nanorex. "With his unparalleled knowledge of molecular design, Drexler will help nanoENGINEER-1 become the premiere design software in this field." Sims aims to create top-of-the line molecular engineering tools for researchers and students pushing the frontier in molecular design and nanoscale engineering.
"Computational modeling tools will play a crucial role in guiding nanomechanical engineering research and help identify novel pathways for fabricating productive nanosystems," said Dr. Drexler. "Nanorex has assembled a world-class team of engineers and scientists developing nanoENGINEER-1, which I anticipate will become a compelling educational and research tool for future nanoengineers."
K. Eric Drexler is often described as the "father of nanotechnology." His theoretical research in this field has been the basis for his three books, including Nanosystems: Molecular Machinery, Manufacturing, and Computation, and numerous journal articles. In 1986, Drexler founded the Foresight Nanotech Institute, a non-profit think tank and public interest organization focused on nanotechnology. He was awarded a PhD from MIT in Molecular Nanotechnology (the first degree of its kind).
About Nanorex Inc.:
Nanorex Inc., based in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, is a developer of computational modeling tools made specifically for the design and analysis of productive nanosystems. Nanorex's first product, nanoENGINEER-1, is a 3D nanomechanical CAD program. It includes both a sophisticated CAD module for the design and modeling of atomically precise components and assemblies, and a molecular dynamics module for setting up and simulating mechanical nanodevices. nanoENGINEER-1 is currently under development and is scheduled for release in early 2006.
