Wayne State University is presenting a day-long Nano Multidisciplinary Incubator Program Symposium on November 13, 2012 in the Welcome Center Auditorium, starting at 8:30 a.m. The symposium is free; registration is required. During the symposium, faculty members in WSU's Nano Incubator will provide technical discussions of their collaborative research in nanotechnology and nanomedicine. Dr. Roberto Romero, chief of the NIH Perinatology Research Branch, professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, and member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies will give the keynote address. Dr. Hamid Ghandehari, director of Utah Center for Nanomedicine and Dr. Matthew Tirrell, director of Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago will lead the discussion.

All faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows interested in nano research are welcome to attend and submit posters related to nanotechnology and nanomedicine. Those interested in submitting posters should send a brief (one page maximum) abstract by October 29th to Dr. Joshua Reineke via email at reineke@wayne.edu.

The symposium is organized by Dr. Guangzhao Mao from the College of Engineering and Dr. Alan P. Hudson from the School of Medicine. The poster session is chaired by Dr. Joshua Reineke from the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

The mission of the Wayne State research incubator, “Adaptive Nanomaterials,” is to synthesize, assemble, and engineer adaptive nanomaterials for imaging, sensing, and drug delivery. The incubator strives to catalyze scientific innovation and create interdisciplinary training programs through the integration of expertise and resources from across the university, medical center, affiliated research and clinical centers, and industry.
