The Missouri Corn Growers Association, established in 1978, is a grassroots organization of farmer-members dedicated to increasing the profitability of corn production by: developing and expanding corn markets, collecting and distributing information, building coalitions with organizations and industries, and participating in the governmental process. The Missouri Corn Merchandising Council was formed in 1984 after a referendum was passed to establish a one-half cent per bushel of corn check-off. MCMC is an organization of corn growers dedicated to the profitability of corn production by investing check-off dollars in: development and expansion of corn markets, facilitating communication with growers, customers and utilization research.

Extractions: T he Virginia Biotechnology Association (VaBIO) is the 200-member statewide non-profit organization that promotes the scientific and economic impact of the life sciences industry in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Nearly 160 biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device companies are based in Virginia, mainly clustered around universities in Blacksburg, Charlottesville, Richmond, Norfolk and Northern Virginia. The biotechnology industry accounts for more than $2.5 billion annually to the state's economy. Biotechnology is a $34 billion industry in the U.S. and is growing at 16% per year. More than 325 million people worldwide have been helped by the more than 155 biotechnology drugs and vaccines approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Of the biotech medicines on the market, 70 percent were approved in the last six years alone. Often described as a single industry, biotechnology is a diverse field, encompassing areas such as pharmaceutical research and manufacturing, medical devices, bioinformatics, drug discovery, agribusiness, environmental remediation and biodefense. Discoveries in biotechnology can significantly enhance our quality of life in many areas, from the food we eat, to the medicines we use, to the environment in which we live. This important research enables Virginians to develop new medicines and foods to improve the lives of our fellow citizens here in the Commonwealth and around the globe.

Prausntiz Group Home Page The purpose of our research is to measure, simulate, interpret and correlate thermodynamic properties of a variety of mixtures as required for process and product design in the chemical and related industries, including biotechnology. http://www.cchem.berkeley.edu/~jmpgrp/
Extractions: Member, American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1988) The purpose of our research is to measure, simulate, interpret and correlate thermodynamic properties of a variety of mixtures as required for process and product design in the chemical and related industries, including biotechnology. Toward that end, we obtain experimental data, perform Monte-Carlo molecular simulations and develop molecular-thermodynamic models based on the statistical mechanics of fluids and solids. Attention is given to crude oils, natural gas, polymers, gels and proteins in solution and at interfaces. While these research studies contribute to our fundamental understanding of condensed matter, their primary application is for industrial chemical engineering design.
