A Midwest Primer on Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Healthcare Nanotech and the Midwest

We are fortunate to have the National Nanotechnology Trade Association located right here in Chicago, leading the nanotech bandwagon, perhaps an indicator of the strength of the Midwest's role in research in this field. Northwestern's prowess is probably most noteworthy as it is spinning out companies in Illinois from its two nanotech institutes (one of which is nanobio-focused) and include:

* Nanosphere and NanoInk (both based on Chad Mirkin technologies)
* Nanotope (based on Sam Stupp technologies)
* Polyera (based on Tobin Marks' technologies)
* Ohmx (based on Tom Meade's technologies), and more recently,
* NanoIntegris (based on Mark Hersam's technologies).
