EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (October 2, 2019) – The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) will host Nano Day on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019 from 3 to 5 p.m.

National Nanotechnology Day acknowledges the nanometer scale, which is 10-9 meters and raises awareness of the current and potential practical applications of nanotechnology.

JSNN graduate student volunteers will host a panel exploring strategies for successful careers in the industry. 

“This is a good opportunity to engage our fellow students as they begin to focus more on professional paths in their respective fields,” said Jimmy Knoop, a first-year Ph.D. nanoengineering student at JSNN.

The panelists are:

  • Alexis Carpenter, Triad Growth Partners (TGP)
  • Anthony Dellinger, Kepley BioSstems, Inc.
  • Geoffrey Foster, Core technologies, Inc.
  • Ashley Turner, ITG Brands

“I am excited about the great research and innovation that our graduate students are involved in,” said Sherine Obare, dean of the Joint School. “I am proud to see their leadership skills on display as they launch this event in celebration of Nano Day.”

Following the panel discussion, attendees are encouraged to participate in the ice cream social and play “Nano Monopoly,” which focuses on nanoscale science and engineering.

The event is open to the campus communities of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and UNC Greensboro (UNCG).
