The company, founded in New Jersey in 2001, moved to the park in early 2011 to work closely with Wake Forest University and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center researchers. It has three employees, led by Roger Cubicciotti, its co-founder.
The company focuses on lower-cost ways to conduct nanotechnology and molecular biology research and produce breakthrough drug discoveries, particularly involving cancer.
What distinguishes NanoMedica from other startup biotech companies is the level of university personnel involved in its development, business strategy and planning. NanoMedica's contribution to the relationship includes placing more than $100,000 worth of equipment in the university's physics department. More.

The school is going through a growth spurt. Its mushrooming animation program now has nine students enrolled and officials expect the discipline to continue growing, especially with a new film school facility that will house the program by 2013.
And the school is in the early stages of planning a joint program between UNCSA and N.C. State University that would allow students to collaborate on gaming efforts. The program would have N.C. State computer engineers create code for the games, while filmmakers and storytellers from UNCSA would create the stories.
In this seminar you will:
- Learn from an industry insider about challenges facing clinicians, scientists, academic medical centers and industry.
- Gain insight on what venture capitalists look for in new start-ups.
- Interact with a community interested in innovation and new venture creation.
