My Green Lab
Allison Paradise, Executive Director - www.mygreenlab.org

My Green Lab is fundamentally and permanently improving the sustainability of scientific research.  A California non-profit, we were formed to unify and lead scientists, vendors, designers, energy providers, and others in a common drive toward a world in which all research reflects the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.  Run “for scientists, by scientists,” we leverage our credibility and track record to develop standards, oversee their implementation, and inspire the many behavioral changes that are needed throughout the scientific community.  Though My Green Lab focuses solely on laboratory environments, we believe our activities will excite similar changes across other industries, and in the private lives of the millions of people who spend their time in labs.

Joe Magno, Executive Director - www.nccoin.org

NC COIN connects innovators and thought leaders across an array of scientific disciplines and sectors in North Carolina — from Biotechnology, Agriculture, Life Sciences, Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine. Established in 2009 with an initial grant from the State and North Carolina Biotechnology’s Centers of Innovation Grant Program, NC COIN is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation that serves the citizens of North Carolina as a Virtual Center of Innovation for businesses, researchers, entrepreneurs, students and institutions. As a statewide organization, NC COIN aims to be one of the premier sources of networking opportunities, information, and tailored innovation services for its members.  In the past few years the Center has evolved into a totally member and sponsor supported not-for-profit by bringing value to its members and the community at large.
