The Alliance for NanoHealth (ANH) was the first multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional collaborative research endeavor aimed solely at using nanotechnology to bridge the gaps between medicine, biology, materials science, computer technology and public policy. The ANH comprises seven world-class research institutions, scientists and clinicians located within the world's largest collection of healthcare facilities.
The American National Standards Institute's Nanotechnology Standards Panel serves as the cross-sector coordinating body for the purposes of facilitating the development of standards in the area of nanotechnology including, but not limited to, nomenclature/terminology; materials properties; and testing, measurement and characterization procedures.
ASNM's activities focus on innovative cutting-edge research in nanomedicine as well as the applications of nanotechnology to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. While promoting seminal research activities in nanomedicine worldwide, issues such as ethics, safety and toxicity, intellectual property, and commercialization will also be addressed and explored.
The Arizona Nanotechnology Cluster, an Arizona not-for-profit organization, was formed in January 2003 to share technological advances, and to promote business development in the fast-growing field of nanotechnology.
This ASTM (originally known as the American Society for Testing and Materials) Committee addresses issues related to standards and guidance materials for nanotechnology & nanomaterials, as well as the coordination of existing ASTM standardization related to nanotechnology needs.
