Shan Zou

Shan Zou is the Team Leader for the Nanoscale Measurement Team at the Metrology Research Centre of the National Research Council (NRC) and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Carleton University. Dr. Zou’s research focuses on the development of nanoscale measurement methods including the integrated multimodal techniques for characterization of nanomaterials and quantitative detection of cancer cells and cellular mechanical responses to drug treatments. She has expertise in nanomechanics, cytotoxicity measurements of nanomaterials, surface and interface characterizations. She seeks to contribute to a greater understanding of the effects of nanomaterials on the environment and living systems, and to promote the safe and responsible use of nanotechnology tools and nanomaterials. She currently serves as the Secretary for the ASTM International E56 Nanotechnology Committee (2018-2023).

Wadood Y. Hamad

Wadood Y. Hamad is currently Lead Scientist and Research Manager of the Transformation and Interfaces Group at FPInnovations. He’s also adjunct professor at UBC’s Department of Chemistry. He has been a leader in the research and development of renewable, nontoxic nanomaterials, particularly his ground-breaking research on the structure-property-process interrelations of cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) processing which led to the commercialization of CNC production. Dr. Hamad was granted in June 2018 the Distinguished Nanoscientist Award and FiberLean Industries Prize by the Nanotechnology Division of the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, TAPPI (USA), and has been elected fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) and the Institute of Materials, Mining and Metallurgy (UK).

Jan Hendrikx

Jan Hendrikx, PhD is manager for Collaborations and IP in the Research and Development Department at STEMCELL Technologies. He obtained his PhD in Cell Biology from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands. After completing his PhD, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the New York Blood Center from 1996-2002. From 2002-2015 Dr. Hendrikx was director of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility of the research institute of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY.
