Tech Nexus Opens in Silicon Valley

Abstract:
A new discipline is emerging at the intersection of biotechnology, information technology, and nanotechnology, and some of the new field's practitioners say the time has come to create a facility dedicated to bio-info-nano research and training.

Until recently, training opportunities were limited to university departments in each of the new discipline's three core fields. But earlier this year, the Bio-Info-Nano Research and Development Institute (BIN-RDI) opened its doors in California's Silicon Valley. The institute aims to become a regional hub for the bio-info-nano convergence community by bringing together interested biologists, chemists, physicists, and engineers. "Our goal is to be a nexus for multiple disciplines and technologies," says David Lackner, the director responsible for coordinating corporate R&D partnerships at BIN-RDI. Furthermore, the new organization is expected to provide some unique training opportunities.
