Several hundred people are expected to gather this fall at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) for a conference featuring experts from industry, government and academia who will focus on applications and opportunities for nanomanufacturing.
“NanoManufacturing 2013: Applications and Opportunities,” will be held Wednesday, Sept. 25, at JSNN on the campus of Gateway University Research Park in Greensboro. Registration is under way and opportunities for sponsorships are available.
Among the speakers will be Dr. Jayesh Doshi, founder, president & CEO of eSpin Technologies Inc., who is leading the effort to commercialize electrospun nanofiber technology. Under Doshi’s leadership, the company has launched four nanofiber-based products: exceed® HVAC air filters, Simwypes® drywipes, Cytoweb® tissue culture media and nWeb® rolled goods. Prior to founding eSpin, he worked as senior chemist at DuPont Company. Doshi earned his PhD in polymer science at the University of Akron, where during his doctoral work he coined the word ‘electrospinning’ in 1991.
