UNC nanotech spin-off forms new venture with Siemens
Date:9/19/2007

private funding, venture capital.

At UNC, Zhou has brought to bear on his research expertise from a wide palette of specialties, including biomedical engineers, radiation oncologists, radiologist, chemists and physicists. His students have also pursued interdisciplinary studies and theyve found jobs in his lab and with Xintek.

Zhou and Lu also have appointments in UNCs Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. They were instrumental in the centers receiving major National Cancer Institute funding that created the Carolina Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence. That Center, in turn, dovetails with the UNC Roadmap Office, which brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines under a National Institutes of Health program.

UNCs Office of Technology Development, which helps place UNC among the top 10 U.S. universities in patent strength, also assisted Zhou, Lu and other collaborators to obtain patents, create Xintek and license the technology.

Its not so often, Zhou said, that you can find a technology that will help so many people cancer screening, security you can talk with your mom about without getting too technical.

Zhou and Lu can bask, at least momentarily, in their current success. But if history is in the making, curators years from now will bemoan the loss of one key artifact; they didnt save the napkin.
