NCBC taps Brooks Adams to lead Center of Innovation in Nanobiotechnology

From Biotech Transfer Week

The North Carolina Biotechnology Center said recently that Brooks Adams will be the executive director of the Center of Innovation in Nanobiotechnology when it is formally launched later this year.

Adams, who has worked for 14 years in innovation management in the life sciences, will be charged with creating a business plan for COIN, the formation of which was announced by NCBC earlier this year to coordinate North Carolina research leading to commercial opportunities in nanobiotechnology.

NCBC said that Adams has worked in global business development and marketing with several undisclosed multinational and startup companies, and has worked on commercialization of products in the areas of nano-aerosols for drug delivery, gene arrays, and DNA diagnostics.
