Lumera Corporation, a leader in the emerging field of nanotechnology, announced an interview with Dr. Charlie Campbell as the most recent installment of its 2007 Lumera Experts Podcasting Series. Campbell is a Professor of Chemistry and founding co-director of the Center of Nanotechnology at the University of Washington as well as a member of Lumera’s Scientific Advisory Board.
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Washington is the third highest funded public institution in chemical research. As a faculty member, Dr. Campbell and others saw the need to converge their research on the nanoscale, which led to the founding of the Center of Nanotechnology. The Center has enabled better research and education in the field of nanotechnology, which is the wave of the future.
“There are huge global issues that are pushing fast such as the fear of global warming and energy sources drying-up in the middle east, so there is a need to push for new energy sources in nanotechnology,” said Campbell in his podcast interview. “The research infrastructure for making new materials that occurred in the field of nanotechnology in about the past ten years will enable some very important technological breakthroughs in this area.”
“Lumera is very fortunate to have Dr. Campbell as a member of Lumera’s Scientific Advisory Board, because of his leading expertise in nanotechnology,” commented Lumera Chief Executive Officer Tom Mino. “We are very excited about the progression in our products that are helping to speed research in many areas of science. We will continue to work closely with experts such as those featured in our podcast series, to ensure that our company stays at the forefront of this exciting field.”
“Lumera is making exciting progress with their product that allows 1500 micro sensors to simultaneously interrogate and find solutions of chemical interests,” said Campbell in his podcast interview. “It promises to be a very powerful tool for future research and an area of importance for society’s impact on medicine.”
The podcasts are available through a variety of distribution networks and can be downloaded among other places at podtech.com; Apple’s iTunes, and Rocky Mountain Podcasting.
