Changes for NGA

NGA Board,

You are most likely aware that Dr. Zina Cinker has accepted a new position and is no longer with NGA. We are grateful for her wonderful leadership and wish for her the very best.

We are moving the NGA offices from Nashville to Oxford, MS, to be near The University of Mississippi Center for Graphene Research and Innovation and to be involved in the rapidly developing graphene commercialization activities in the region.

Dr. Ahmed Al-Ostaz, director of the University Graphene Center and who is a Charter Member of the NGA Advisory Board, will represent the NGA in the global discussion standards assuring we have a strong voice in this important arena. Dr. Chip Wade, who holds terminal degrees in Biomechanics and Finance, has been retained as a consultant to better focus our efforts on commercialization.

We look forward to connecting personally in the coming days to introduce our new direction and get your valuable input into the future and direction of NGA.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or Dr. Wade with questions or comments or to schedule an opportunity to talk.
