JSNN Alumnus Wins National Award for Semiconductor Nanowire Device

GREENSBORO, NC – March 23, 2020 – Imagine a device worn on the wrist to monitor health issues at a level that gives more freedom to those who are chronically ill and lowers their healthcare costs; that makes self-driving vehicles safer by assessing distance in a detailed and highly accurate way; boosts computer speed greatly while lowering cost; and leads to flexible solar cells that can be used in textiles and in lightweight building supplies.

These applications are among the many futuristic uses for the award-winning nanowire research carried out by a N.C. A&T State University graduate student at Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN), located at Gateway Research Park.

Manish Sharma, Ph.D., a 2019 JSNN alumnus, received a national 2020 Council of Historically Black Graduate Schools (CBHGS) ProQuest Dissertation Award for the synthesis of materials in the wire configuration at nanoscale, leading to a device that detects light and converts it into electrical energy in the infrared wavelength, which is beyond the visible wavelength.

“We’re very happy to see Manish be recognized with this prestigious award,” said JSNN Dean Sherine Obare. “JSNN has the facility, faculty and the learning of multiple disciplines that enable students to discover technologies to shape the future of science and technology.”

“It’s an honor to be acknowledged for my contributions to the field,” said Dr. Sharma, now a Technology Development Module and Integration Yield Engineer at Intel Corporation. “I could not have done it without the assistance and guidance of my advisor, Dr. Shanthi Iyer.”

Dr. Iyer said, “ Nanowires are very versatile and this work shows great promise for designing miniaturized advanced devices of the next generation. These devices can play a critical role in a number of optoelectronic components used in daily life by increasing efficiency and lowering cost.”  Dean Obare added, “Manish is an inspiration to other students, and I look forward to other students striving to developing innovative discoveries that impact society.”

CBD-infused active wear could be cure for beleaguered Triad textile industry

GREENSBORO, NC – December 10, 2019 – Sore knees and elbows might be the catalyst that reinvigorate the Triad’s diminished textile industry.

In blending what is new with what is old, Asheboro-based hemp processor Founder’s Hemp is partnering with Nufabrx, a biomaterials company out of Conover, North Carolina, to create CBD oil-infused activewear.

Hemp Squeeze is a compression sleeve garment infused with CBD oil to deliver relief over time to the joints.

The hemp industry has been on the rise in N.C. since 2018, when legislation allowing for the crop to be grown, harvested and processed for industrial purposes took hold.

Since then, CBD oils, creams, oral drops and even smokeable hemp products have been marketed as a holistic treatment for everything from anxiety to joint pain and inflammation.

“We’re taking a brand new industry –– hemp, and taking an old industry –– textile and we’re using new technology to help rejuvenate textiles in North Carolina,” said Bob Crumley, founder and CEO of Founder’s Hemp .

“I never dreamed, when we first started this three years ago, that our Hemp Squeeze product would be made in Asheboro.”

Founders, through its retail extension, Everything Hemp Store, and its agricultural side, Innovative AgriProducts, is among the state’s largest hemp procurers and the first to be registered in North Carolina.

Despite the prevalence of CBD shops and the adoption of the hemp industry by farmers and even scientists –– the 2019 Piedmont Triad Industrial Hemp Conference was held at Gateway Research Park  –– there is still a reluctance by some to differentiate between hemp and marijuana.

“We want to get people thinking more about how hemp can be used to help grow other industries,” Crumley said. “Specialty products, like infused textiles found in Hemp Squeeze, are one way to bring quality textile jobs back to the state.”

In October, Asheboro was awarded a $150,000 building reuse grant through the N.C. Rural Infrastructure Authority to assist Founder’s in expanding its facility.

The Nufabrx technology is patented, and deploys the CBD oil extracted from the hemp plant via the fibers of its Nufabrx yarn. The result is 360-degree relief around the afflicted elbow or knee. The products the company manufactures –– delivering vitamin, supplements, medications –– typically endure for more than 25 washes.

“Nufabrx is extremely excited to partner with Founder’s Hemp to launch an entirely new category of CBD infused products,” said Schindler.

“Health Wear is the next generation of clothing, with CBD and other actives built directly into the garment itself.”

​UNCG Plant and Pollinator Center Opens at Gateway

New Center Uses Comprehensive Research to Deal with Threats Facing Pollinators

JULY 24, 2019 – GREENSBORO, NC – The UNC Greensboro Plant and Pollinator Center has a new facility in Gateway Research Park, with an indoor laboratory space of 3500 square feet and an outdoor space larger than a football field. The research conducted at Gateway addresses the dire problems facing honey bees and other pollinators through a comprehensive approach that’s unique in the field of study.

By connecting both plant and pollinator research in its new, larger space at Gateway North, the Plant and Pollinator Center brings together all aspects of work related to honey bee health. The entire human population relies on plants and pollinators, which, in turn, need each other to survive. More than three-quarters of major food crops including fruits and vegetables require pollination by bees. In addition to serving students and faculty, the Plant and Pollinator Center has plans to interact with the community at large, through programs for students, beekeepers, master gardeners and others.

Dr. Olav Rueppell, a Principal Investigator of the UNCG Plant and Pollinator Center, said, “We selected Gateway Research Park as a wonderful space for integrated research and engagement with the whole community. Gateway North is a beautiful, natural setting for our work.”

Gateway Executive Director John Merrill said, “The UNCG Plant and Pollinator Center is a highly valuable addition to Gateway, not only because of the important work they do, but also because it brings opportunities to collaborate in new ways.”

The new location provides research and classroom space with three state-of-the-art rooms, including a community engagement room for classroom instruction and meetings, a lab for processing and storing samples from the field and a clean lab for molecular and microbial analyses. The adjacent outdoor area is being used for pollinator-friendly green space and experimental planting plots and as an apiary.

At UNCG, Drs. Olav Rueppell and Kasie Raymann have been conducting research on honey bees, including their genetics, the social behavior of honey bees and the causes of honey bee diseases along with potential means to remedy them. “Something is making viruses more lethal to honeybees and their immune systems are being compromised by poor nutrition,” said Dr. Rueppell. He explained that crops, such as corn and wheat, no longer have weed flowers in their fields as they used to, making the fields a virtual desert that lacks the nutrition honey bees need.

While Dr. Rueppell’s research is on viruses affecting the honey bee population and mites that vector the viruses, his colleague Dr. Kasie Raymann, Assistant Professor in Biology, focuses on microbiomes, which live in the honey bee gut and help bees metabolize nectar into honey and get protection against pathogens. “Microbiomes are bacteria that live inside of an organism and are important for the health of bees,” said Dr. Raymann. “As social insects, bees get their microbiomes from other bees in the hive. These microbes are essential to metabolize nectar to honey and also provide natural disease resistance. Antibiotics and pesticides can alter the microbiomes that bees require to be healthy.”

UNCG faculty Drs. Ayalew Ligaba-Osena and Sally Koerner conduct environmental research on plant health and productivity that will be central to the research mission at the location. Dr. Sally Koerner’s work concentrates on how the ecosystem and especially climate change affect plants and pollinators. Dr. Koerner uses applied and basic research to see how changes in the global environment affect plants and what can be done to help honey bees adapt and thrive. Her studies include the diversity of plant life, with particular interest in the savannas found in the U.S. and Africa. The fourth co-director of the Plant and Pollinator Center, Dr. Ayalew Ligaba Osena, studies plant biotechnology to improve the utility of underutilized agricultural crops, such as teff. His efforts to advance the diversity of agricultural crops may ultimately not only help feed humanity but also provide a more sustainable environment for our pollinators.

“By linking plant and pollinator research, we’re researching all aspects of work related to honey bee health,” added Dr. Raymann. “The work we’re doing will put us on the map.”

An opening ceremony will take place at the new center on the afternoon of September 15th.  Learn more about biology faculty reserch at www.uncg.edu/bio.

Crowdfunding for Novel Product to Ease Shelter Dog Adoptions

GREENSBORO, N.C., May 2, 2019 — Following extensive olfaction research across species, Kepley BioSystems is preparing to market Kepley K9™ Strategic Scent Stimulant. The launch will kick off with crowdfunding for product donations to facilitate shelter dog adoptions.

Kepley K9™ Strategic Scent Stimulant provides the organic amines that stimulate final canine peristalsis when dogs “sniff” to complete the purpose of most “walks” for the family dog. Early testing has shown it can help dogs find the specific molecules they seek – faster – and thus, help focus even distracted dogs when “sniffing” before they “go” on their daily walks.

The Kepley team believes this patent-pending product can also play a vital role in orienting adopted dogs to their new human families. That is, the solution provides a plume of distinctly “outdoor” scents when allowing access to an appropriate location for the dog to confidently distinguish going outside from “indoor” space. Being able to clearly communicate expectations to a new canine family member could increase the rate of successful adoptions with fewer “accidents” that too often result in dogs being relinquished back to shelters.

“A journey of a million rescues can begin with these donations,” said Kepley president, Anthony Dellinger. “By sharpening the contrast between being ‘outside’ and indoor spaces that could seem a bit like the kennel to a rescue, we hope to help ensure more forever homes.”

Lee Robertson, director of scientific communications, observed, “By crowdfunding these donations, we can not only introduce Kepley K9™ to people who want to spend less time wandering around and more time enjoying their dog – but also help adopted rescues adapt to their new routines.”

The crowdfunding program will enable contributors to donate 1 bottle of Kepley K9™ Strategic Scent Stimulant with each bottle they buy for their own dog. And, for everyone who pre-registers and purchases, the company will donate 2 bottles to help adopted dogs adjust to their new homes even faster – while seeing how it can save time and reduce anxiety, especially for dogs that often appear frustrated with extended sniffing and searching.

To pre-register for a 2:1 donation with each purchase: Please visit www.kepleyk9.com/shelters today (For direct access, go to: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/kepley-k9-the-s… Kepley K9™ Strategic Scent Stimulant can ensure more quality time with your dog as well as forever homes for rescues with every bottle!

Gateway Unveils New Name

APRIL 30, 2019 – GREENSBORO, NC – Gateway Research Park has a new name, logo and web address that represents slight changes from the former brand identity. We’re now Gateway Research Park, a name considered when Gateway first opened in 2006.

At that time, we added “University” to introduce the connections with NC A&T State University and UNC Greensboro. Now that Gateway is more established in the community, we’ve moved to Gateway Research Park, shorter and faster to say.

“The word “gateway” has multiple meanings that are fitting for the research park,” says John Merrill, Executive Director of Gateway. “It’s a means of access or entry to a place and we’re on the eastern side of Greensboro on one of the more prominent entries to the City. The east is also where the sun first shines every day and new light is shed on solving problems. It’s a means of getting to a state of being and in the tech world, it connects our networks.”

The Gateway Research Park logo has slight modifications. It includes the logos and colors of both universities with a bridge between them, representing the overarching collaboration we enjoy in Gateway South and Gateway North. The arch also symbolizes our desired connectivity with our neighbors. Neighbors at Gateway South are Hayes-Taylor YMCA, Barber Park, Gateway Gardens, and surrounding neighborhoods; at Gateway North our neighbors include Bryan Park. We also intend to collaborate with any future developments that may occur in the area, including projects around connectivity the City of Greensboro and the community have planned for East Greensboro.

Our tagline is “Where Collaboration Stimulates Innovation,” consistent with our ongoing message, and the website URL is now www.GatewayResearchPark.com. Soon there will be new signs at each location entrances.

John adds, “We prefer referencing ‘Gateway’ when talking about our locations rather than simply the initials. So, you’ll hear ‘Gateway South’ and ‘Gateway North’ when we’re identifying a particular site.”

Kepley BioSystems to Attend Annual F3 (Future of Fish Feed) Meeting

GREENSBORO, N.C., February 18, 2019 — Kepley BioSystems (KBI) will be participating by invitation this week in the annual F3 (Future of Fish Feed) Meeting to be held from February 19 – 22, 2019, at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront. With a mission to accelerate the replacement of fishmeal and fish oil with innovative alternatives, this year’s theme, “F3: Companies Got Talent,” focuses on industry perspectives and progress toward substitutes for fishmeal and/or fish oil in aquaculture feeds.

The KBI team has developed an alternative aquaculture feed that delivers optimized nutrient formulations in a worm-based “capsule” with a patent-pending approach to a recirculating aquafarm cultivation system. Dr. Anthony Dellinger, KBI president, will be highlighting this and related work during an F3 panel discussion on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at 3:00PM (PST).

In addition to alternatives to fish ingredients in aquaculture feed, with federal grant funding from the National Science Foundation, the KBI team has invented a patent-pending, synthetic bait to attract and trap lobster and crab for use in crustacean fishing. The industry spends $20 billion annually in the global capture and utilization of some 40 billion pounds of bait fish. This synthetic product, OrganoBait(TM), incorporates naturally occurring molecules to mimic the attractant properties of forage fish, without the use of fish or other animal byproducts. Upon full commercialization, OrganoBait would provide a sustainable, environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and consistently available alternative to “wasting” fish to catch fish – while helping to avert ocean ecosystem collapse from overfishing, especially using drift-net practices.

KBI is also currently fulfilling another Phase I aquatic research study funded by the National Science Foundation to help protect fragile, wild populations of horseshoe crabs (HSCs). By “ranching” them, the KBI goal is to eliminate the need to capture increasingly threatened wild HSCs to harvest their unique, copper-infused blood for biomedical sterility testing. Its sensitivity to endotoxins is unmatched in ensuring the safety of injectable medicine and implantable devices for millions of patients worldwide, every year.

“We are honored to participate in the 2019 F3 meeting,” said Dellinger. “It’s exciting to join such a stellar group of researchers and enterprises dedicated to innovation toward more sustainable fishing and aquaculture practices.”

Biomedical company 3i Nanotech emerges out of Gateway Research Park

By John Joyce
Reporter, Triad Business Journal (Greensboro, NC)

November 30, 2018

NOVEMBER 30, 2018, GREENSBORO, NC — When a heart attack strikes, every minute matters.

The ability to quickly and accurately diagnose and begin to treat a heart attack can mean the difference between life and death and irreparable damage to the heart’s muscle tissue.

So a handheld device in an ambulance that can say definitively whether a person is having a heart attack and how severe it might be would be useful.

Taylor Mabe thought so. Mabe has been a Ph.D. student at the UNC-Greensboro for four years, and just last week earned the right to include the letters behind his name. Mabe and his professor, Jianjun Wei, together at UNCG and N.C. A&T State University’s Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering at Gateway Research Park, developed a company called 3i Nanotech, or 3i Nano for short.

They came up with a product that accomplishes through a device what previously could only have be done in a hospital. The device checks for the troponin, a protein that’s present in blood during cardiac arrest.

It’s not where Mabe saw himself just a few short years ago.

“I had been a musician my whole life,” he said. He auditioned and had some early success on season 4 of the Fox talent show American Idol in 2011.

“I got past six rounds the year Carrie Underwood won, but I always said with her voice and her legs I didn’t have a chance to win,” Mabe said.

Mabe also toured for several years with a metal band, Swift, garnering a large following. But the ebbs and flows of the money associated with the music business left Mabe searching for something more stable. He went back to finish his biochemistry education at UNCG, just around the time the JSNN was getting up and running.

“As of Oct. 15, I am a doctor and a CEO of a company. That sounds so weird to say that,” he said, laughing. “I mean I still think of myself as a tattooed guy that plays guitar.”

Add medical device developer to the resume.

A slide with slits about the size of the length of a human hair cut into 10,000 slices is used to collect a sample. And using tiny particles of DNA atop the slide, the protein attaches to the DNA and can be seen.

That’s what the patents are on, allowing 3i Nano to get rid off old, complex instrumentation, he said.

The National Science Foundation and a program called i-Corp funded the research and development, which Mabe and Wei built their company around.

“You kind of need to get some kind of niche market first and then broaden, so that’s what that program offered,” Mabe said.

Through conducting interviews with potential consumers – rather than developing a product from an idea and hoping it would sell – 3i Nano learned the needs of potential clients without wasting a ton of time, energy and funding.

“Going through that program is (where) we identified the troponin for heart attack,” he said. “Where there is a hole in the market, what we found, is in a pre-hospital setting.”

So instead of mass producing a product that already existed, they found away to shrink and make the same technology mobile – in a device that will likely save lives.

That is, after it completes further testing. The device is not in the mass production phase yet. First up is a small-business innovation research grant due on Dec. 4. That would give 3i Nano about $250,000 to investigate the viability of the device.

“We’ve got proof of concept. We’ve just formed the company. I’ve published papers to show that this works,” Mabe said. “I’ve got a lot of people behind me.”

The state and Gateway Research Park have poured so much money into the JSNN, Mabe said, that they are eager to see his company and others be successful.

“I feel really lucky in the fact that I have so much support and encouragement.”
