Academic Advisory

The Academic Advisory Group (AAC) addresses issues and provides advice and recommendations to the OC on NTI operations with respect to its research partners.

To streamline interactions with institutions, the AAC member list includes a contact representative at each individual institution. These representatives serve as efficient conduits into the relevant departments of their institutions, particularly if institutional decisions regarding intellectual property or participation in NTI programs are required.

When the NFL announced a package of Thursday night games were Men Brandon Bollig Jersey going up for auction earlier this year, CBS (CBS) was not the network Authenitc Rasmus Andersson Jersey expected to win out.

Why Is Small So Big?

Nanotechnology deals with products and processes that are measured in almost unbelievably small increments called “nanometers”—one billionth of a meter.

At the nanoscale, materials differ from larger objects in their physical, chemical and biological properties; therefore, they lend themselves to new and improved materials, systems and devices. Nanotechnology is behind the development of such diverse advancements as:

  1. Drug Delivery
  2. Biofiltration and Separation sciences
  3. Improved coatings for medical devices

Thanks to rapid advances in this exciting new field, we now have the tools and talents to manipulate materials on the molecular scale—a technology literally changing the world as we know it.
