This week Sona Nanotech was delighted to welcome Senator Mary Coyle and her team to our laboratory.
Senator Coyle, who represents Nova Scotia in the Senate of Canada, was keen to see Sona’s facility at the Innovacorp Centre in Dartmouth and speak to our award-winning scientists to learn more about our unique gold nanorod technology.
During the visit the Senator and her team toured the lab and were given demonstrations of some of the machines and techniques we use to make our nanorods.
Speaking after her visit, Senator Coyle said: “Thank you Sona Nanotech for hosting me and my team today and for showing us your innovative and important work. It was wonderful to see it first hand.”
Back in March, Senator Coyle highlighted the company’s achievements in the Parliament of Canada.
In a Senate statement on ‘Immigration and Innovation in Rural Nova Scotia’, Senator Coyle told fellow Senators she would like to “sing the praises” of immigrants who had settled in Antigonish including Sona Nanotech’s Dr Kulbir Singh, an Indian who originally came to the community as a postdoc researcher at St. Francis Xavier University, where Senator Coyle has worked since 1997.
Dr Singh, Sona’s chief technical officer, said: “Senator Coyle has always supported Sona Nanotech and followed the company’s progress with interest, so it was an honour to welcome her to the lab so she could see our work for herself.
“We look forward to continuing to share our success as we grow and develop into a global business.”
