Spectradyne LLC today announced its Experimental Innovation Award (EIA), a program designed to encourage new, ground-breaking research efforts in the area of nanoparticle characterization using the innovative Spectradyne nCS1 instrument.
The nCS1 enables both size and concentration measurements of nanoparticles that are not obtainable with existing light scattering-based techniques.
Franklin Monzon, CEO, Spectradyne
The EIA is open to PhD graduate students at a North American college or university who are studying biotechnology, biochemistry, biopharmaceuticals, material science/engineering or other related fields having an interest in nanoparticle analysis.
Qualified candidates are encouraged to submit proposals by May 31, 2017, with the winner to be announced by the end of June 2017. The winner will have free use of an nCS1 for two months, including training and support, and will be eligible for a paid trip to present results at an applicable scientific conference or meeting. Detailed information on how to apply can be found at http://nanoparticleanalyzer.com/nanoparticle-EIA.php .
We wanted to make this technology available to PhD graduate students in order to advance science and develop applications for this technology. We also want to continue to support this research community.
