nanoTox, the first company to provide complete risk assessment exclusively for nanoparticles, announced today that Roxane Smith has been appointed as nanoTox Business Development for North Carolina.
nanoTox officials indicate that the use of nanotechnology in various manufacturing processes and product development is exploding. North Carolina is the 2nd largest hub in the US for nanotechnology growth and development. Nanoparticles are being utilized and/or researched in biotechnology, energy, apparel, cosmetics, and many other industries. With the company's focus on nanosafety, it felt that North Carolina is a perfect place for nanoTox, said Harry Bushong, CEO. nanoTox looks forward to working with NC industries to facilitate the safe use of nanotechnology.
Roxane came highly recommended to the nanoTox management team, having worked in the healthcare and biotechnology field for more than 15 years bringing expertise in sales and sales management. nanoTox believes her experience with start-up companies and her unique background make her an excellent addition to the team. As a North Carolina native, Roxane is familiar with the nanotechnology landscape and looks forward to working with and supporting the nanotechnology movement in North Carolina.
