Washington Metro Region Nanotechnology Partnership Forum at NIST

Gaithersburg, MD | Posted on September 3rd, 2010

On Sept. 13, 2010, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Federal Laboratory Consortium, the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) and the Montgomery County Department of Economic Development will co-sponsor a nanotechnology forum on NIST's Gaithersburg, Md., campus. Participating organizations also will include the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, NASA, Cytimmune Sciences, MITRE, The Johns Hopkins University and Lockheed Martin.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet researchers from federal agencies and laboratories, academia and private-sector firms looking for potential partners in nanotechnology and learn about the unique resources available in the Washington metro region. Presentations and poster sessions will include biomedical nanotechnology applications, advanced materials and manufacturing, and nanoelectronics. Other topics will include commercializing emerging technologies and how to connect with regional resources such as federal labs, universities and private sector firms. In addition, a panel discussion will take place featuring members of the nanotechnology industry.

The registration deadline for U.S. citizens has been extended until noon, Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010. A registration fee of $20 includes refreshments and lunch. Non-U.S. citizens who wish to attend should contact Cathy Cohn, (301) 975-6691.

Keynote:

Travis Earles, Co-Chair, Subcommittee on Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology, National Science and Technology Council.

Agenda:
Time: 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., followed by an optional tour of the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science & Technology.

Topics include nanotechnology biomedical applications, advanced materials and manufacturing, and nanoelectronics; commercializing emerging technologies; and how to connect with regional resources: federal labs, universities, and private sector. In addition, a panel discussion will take place featuring members of the nanotechnology industry. Participating organizations include FDA, NIH, NASA, NIST, Cytimmune Sciences, MITRE, Johns Hopkins, and Lockheed Martin.
