Nanotechnology and biotechnology are two young but rapidly developing sectors that will have major impacts on our lives. They're also happening all over Greater Philadelphia. The Nanotechnology Institute, a partnership between Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern PA, Drexel and UPenn facilitates the research, development and commercialization of nanotech's real-world applications, both changing the world and fueling the regional economy. The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center of Bucks County and PennsylvaniaBio in Malvern are both giving biotech priority and strength. Greater Philadelphia companies' work in applications software, information management and alternative energy are other examples of the region's leadership in bringing the very latest to the marketplace.
