Scientist Solutions: International Life Science Community By Scientists For Scientists

Thanks to our sponsors who make this site possible
Bettye' Bench [how it works]
My Bench Space is your space on Scientist Solutions, with both a private area where you can keep track of your account settings and favorite postings, and a public area where you can upload your picture, customize your profile, or start a blog

My Summary
Keeps a log of the topics you've started, the replies you've made, protocols or events you've posted, etc. Your summary will show up in your public profile.

My Blogs
You can create as many blogs as you like. They'll be viewable by anyone who looks at your profile, and they will also be indexed and listed in The Forums section of Scientist Solutions

My Lab Drawer (private)
As you browse through Scientist Solutions, you may see a topic, event, job or protocol that you'd like to store so that you can find it again easily. By clicking the "Save to My Bench Space" button next to any item on our site, you will put that item in your lab drawer for future reference.
You can also add fellow scientists to your lab drawer by clicking the "Save this scientist to My Bench Space" link next to that member's name in their posts or Bench Space profiles.

My PubMed Alerts (private)
This really cool tool allows you to set up email notifications whenever and article in your area of interest (specified by keyword is published in PubMed

About My Research

The Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative (SNNI) is one of the four major research thrusts of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI); Oregon's first 'signature research center' established for the purpose of growing research and commercializing nanotechnology in the state. SNNI is a multi-disciplinary, multi-university Initative which brings together 25 research investigators from Oregon State University, the University of Oregon, Portland State University, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

SNNI's objectives are to develop new nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing approaches that offer a high level of performance, yet pose minimal harm to human health or the environment. Our research merges the principles of green chemistry and nanoscience to produce safer nanomaterials and more efficient nanomanufacturing processes in the context of producing nanoparticles and nanostructured materials for applications in fields such as photovoltaics, nanoelectronics and sensing. SNNI brings together chemists, biologists, materials scientists, physicists and engineers from ONAMI to pioneer new approaches to the design, production and use of nanomaterials.

SNNIs efforts in green nanoscience address:
1. the design of inherently safer nanoparticles for use in electronic and optical applications
2. the development of greener methods for large-scale nanoparticle production
3. the discovery of efficient approaches for interfacing nanoparticles with each other or with other components in functional devices.

Each of these objectives is critical to the development of safe, yet high performance applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
