nanoTX'07 -- the World's Premiere Nnanotechnology Conference and Exposition -- Appoints Peter G. Balbus as Director of Grants and Awards

Dallas, TX | Posted on July 23rd, 2007

nanoTX'07 today announced the appointment of Peter G. Balbus as Director of Grants and Awards for its upcoming conference and exhibition October 2-4, 2007 at the Dallas Convention Center. In this role, he will be responsible for managing all aspects of the program's internal and external strategy, partner selection and event planning. He will also MC and host the awards ceremonies during nanoTX'07 and provide a point of contact for media relations. This new role emphasizes the position of nanoTX'07 as the world's most watched nanotechnology event and a unique platform for other organizations to announce their grants and awards to a truly global audience and media channels.

Balbus is CEO and Managing Director of Pragmaxis, LLC, a privately-held company that provides strategy, interim management, open innovation and technology commercialization services with an emphasis on nanotechnology. He recently completed a major engagement with the Nanotech Institute at the University of Texas/Dallas where he was involved in technology commercialization strategy, process development and actively involved in several licensing agreements with external ventures.

"We are delighted to have Peter on board with us in this important role," said Colonel Mason, nanoTX chairman. "I have enormous respect for his abilities and talents and am confident that he will deliver a superb program for us." Last year Balbus served as chairman of the nanoTX'06 Energy Summit and a session speaker on emerging trends in nanotechnology commercialization.

Balbus echoed Colonel Mason's excitement over his new role. "It is indeed a privilege to be a part of something as visionary and comprehensive as nanoTX'07," he stated. "The breadth and depth of science, products, emerging trends and future opportunities of nanotechnology showcased at nanoTX'07 is unrivalled by any other conference in the world. And the grants and awards program will reflect this industry-leading commitment to excellence."

Organizations wishing to make global announcements of their own grants and awards programs are encouraged to contact nanoTX with their proposals. A selected few partners will be chosen to participate in the awards ceremonies at nanoTX'07 based on a combination of their alignment with the nanoTX'07 mission and the strength of their proposals.

Hint of Things to Come:
While all parties involved are under a news blackout for now, the grants and awards program at nanoTX'07 will include the global proclamation of a major new awards program being announced by one of the world's oldest and most prestigious family foundations. Recognizing the critical challenges of the 21st century, this new awards program is designed to focus attention and resources on stimulating innovative solutions and approaches to tackle some of the most complex issues facing humanity today. More information about this awards program will be made available over the next several weeks.
