During these difficult financial times we remain committed to NNI spending and U.S. R&D spending. These were my comments from my speech at Nanoinformtics 2011 if you would like to listen:


We will be hosting the Nanotech Commercialization Conference with the Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN) on April 4-5, 2012. The Conference is being held at the American Tobacco Campus in Research Triangle, Durham, NC. At present time there are over 40 NanoBio companies in North Carolina. Details on this upcoming event will follow after the New Year.

As we come to the end of the year I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes by Dale Carnegie,
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” I would like to wish you and your family a happy holiday season.
