Nanoinformatics Workshop: Enabling successful discovery and applications January 26-28, 2015Holiday Inn National Airport Hotel Arlington, VA NEW EXTENDED ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 4, 2015 The purpose of the Nanoinformatics 2015 workshop (http://nanoinformatics.org/2015/overview) is to bring together stakeholders in order to assess the state of informatics relevant to the all aspects of the nanotechnology enterprise and to set priority targets for the future. From materials to processes to products; accessible data, information, models, and simulations will enable innovators to optimize performance and accelerate the innovation cycle from concept to product. Scientists and engineers will be able to efficiently assess the safety of new nanomaterials and quantitatively implement best practices of safe manufacturing and usage of nanomaterials throughout product lifecycles. Scientists will share predictive models and data that enable the design and discovery of nanomaterials and the resulting performance of systems that use them.Workshop Structure and Highlights NanoInfo 2015 will begin with a pre-workshop half-day tutorial, held on Monday, January 26 in the afternoon. The technical sessions will be held from Tuesday January 27 through Wednesday January 28. Accepted abstracts will be assigned to either a formal presentation session or to the poster presentation and discussion session on Tuesday.The NanoInfo 2015 on-line submission system is now open Authors wishing to submit an abstract for review may do so by clicking here, on the 2015 Call for Presentations and Posters link (http://nanoinformatics.org/nidocuments/add ).Please note that all submissions must be submitted using this on-line interface.

AUSTIN, TX NanoHybrids Corporation, a provider of nanotechnology-based contrast agents announced the launch of its new website and premium product line of gold nanoparticles specially designed to improve imaging results. The companys initial technology platform was developed in collaboration with researchers from the Biomedical Engineering Department at The University of Texas at Austin and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. "Frustrated by inconsistent imaging results due to highly variable shape, size and other properties of commercially available gold nanoparticle contrast agents, our team has developed highly monodisperse gold nanorods and nanospheres that will help scientists obtain consistent and better quality data. We also have a policy of no proprietary coatings which means that unlike some companies in this space, we offer full transparency on surface chemistry, making it easier for our customers to modify and use these particles depending on their application," says Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Kimberly Homan. NanoHybrids offerings include an exclusive line of silica-coated gold nanorods that are quickly gaining popularity as contrast agents in photoacoustic (optoacoustic) imaging. As opposed to current preclinical imaging contrast agents on the market, NanoHybrids silica-coated nanorods resist melting and shape distortion even when subjected to extreme heat via focused laser beams. In addition to providing this enhanced thermodynamic stability, the silica-coating also facilitates better heat transfer to the surrounding fluid, thus dramatically increasing signal strength. Overall, these benefits make the companys silica-coated gold nanorods an excellent contrast agent for not only in vitro and in vivo photoacoustic imaging but also many other applications involving continuous or pulsed lasers. The founders at NanoHybrids have decades of experience in biomedical imaging and have been pioneering the development of contrast agents alongside custom designed imaging systems. "Our products have been developed by imaging researchers, for researchers. As scientists ourselves, we understand the challenges involved when working with gold nanoparticles in imaging and strive to provide the highest possible level of quality and technical support," says Homan. (http://www.nanohybrids.net)About NanoHybrids Inc. NanoHybrids is an Austin-based company focused on commercializing nanotechnology solutions. The companys current product line comprises of premium gold nanoparticles with specialized coatings, including a proprietary silica coating that provides colloidal stability, bioconjugation potential and enhanced optical properties. NanoHybrids gold nanoparticles are ideal for use in imaging, tumor targeting, microscopy, lateral flow assays, SERS, drug delivery research, sensors and several other high-technology applications within the fields of life science and materials science. http://www.nanohybrids.net (http://www.nanohybrids.net) Product Applications: http://nanohybrids.net/pages/applications (http://nanohybrids.net/pages/applications) Products: http://nanohybrids.net/collections/all-products (http://nanohybrids.net/collections/all-products) Contact information: info at nanohybrids.net (mailto:email@example.com)
