Mirexus Biotechnologies is now an Industrial member of Nano Ontario.

Mirexus Biotechnologies Inc. is pleased to announce that it is now an industrial member of Nano Ontario; a not-for-profit organization that embodies the interests of the academic, industry, government and financial communities and organizes outreach activities that exemplify the ways in which nanotechnology can benefit society.

 “We are pleased to join Nano Ontario.” says Phil Whiting, President & CEO. “Mirexus is committed to scientific excellence and becoming a member of Nano Ontario will help enable Mirexus to improve its research impact and grow new applications of nanotechnology to all our benefit.”

Nanotechnology is an emerging field in which new materials and devices are being developed at the scale of individual molecules. The term “nano” comes from “nanometer”, which is one-billionth of a meter, or one ten thousandth of the diameter of a human hair. This scale is so small that it is difficult to imagine, and it was not until recently that these structures could be measured. This capability has led to an explosion of new applications.

Nano Ontario Inc. is welcoming Mirexus Biotechnologies a superb Ontario and Canadian example where fundamental discoveries were developed into successful and commercialized applications of green nanomaterials. Nano Ontario Inc. will use all possible resources to further help the growth of Mirexus Biotechnologies in Canada and abroad.” says François Lagugné-Labarthet, Chair of the Board of Directors of Nano Ontario
