  • A research program focused on the toxicology of products and processes associated with nanaotechnology and coordinated throughout the five research universities and NCTR.
  • A regulatory science curriculum at UAMS leading to certificates and Master's degrees.
  • A "working group" appointed by the governor, with an NCTR co-chair, that will coordinate all the center's activities, assess policy and other barriers, and report back annually to the state.

In addition, the working group will provide assistance in commercializing technology produced by the center's research.

Beebe said the collaboration between the universities and the federal government will lead only to good things for the state such as many new high-paying jobs.

"Add business and industry into the equation, then you have an unstoppable force," he said.
