Parabon NanoLabs - About PNL - Nanotechnology - Innovative Designers of Custom Macromolecules
In 2005, Dr. Michael Norton, a pioneer in the field of DNA-based nanotechnology, and Dr. Steven Armentrout, serving as CEO of Parabon Computation (PCI), began discussing the computational roadblocks then hindering progress in the field of DNA nanotechnology.
On 4 March 2008, after proving the commercial potential of their DNA nanotechnology in the laboratory, PCI and Dr. Norton founded Parabon NanoLabs with the mission to create breakthrough products using DNA. Mike Norton Michael L. Norton, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Science Officer, is also a Professor of Chemistry at Marshall University (MU). He first began working in the field of nanoscience in 1977, when he was a graduate student working with two-dimensional materials. He regularly participates in National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund proposal reviews. He earned a Ph.D. in Solid State Chemistry from Arizona State University and went on to pursue two years of post-graduate training in Optical and Electronic Materials at the Naval Weapons Center in China Lake, California.

In addition to beginning their research projects, they attended a talk on nanotechnology by Dr. Mike Norton of Marshall University and explored the nature of scientific inquiry through jigsaw puzzles (photo below).
3-8 6 Dr. Norton (below) talked about his lab's work in self-assembling structures at atomic and molecular scales and potential applications. He presented a series of problems and questions yet to be solved in chemistry and nanotechnology and challenged YSDE students to pursue those questions.

In 2005, its parent company Parabon Computation developed the inSequio Sequence Design Studio-bioCAD software for DNA design and assembly-based on a collaboration between company CEO Steven Armentrout and Marshall University nanotech researcher Michael Norton.
Armentrout and Norton initially thought they would license the software to another company, but instead joined Duke University professor Christopher Dwyer in 2008 to found subsidiary Parabon Nanolabs. Michael Norton
Scientist Spotlight - Dr. Michael Norton
For Dr. Michael Norton, the path is important. Knowing from an early age that he would be a chemist, Dr.... ATHENS, W.Va. - Dr. Michael L. Norton, professor of chemistry at Marshall University, will speak at Concord University on Thursday, Oct. 25 as part of the Division of Natural Sciences Fall Colloquium. The title of his presentation is "There's Still Plenty of Room at the Bottom." "Although chemists have been creating single molecules from the beginning of the field, our ability to manipulate and observe these small bits of matter is a relatively recent phenomenon," Norton says in his abstract. Dr. Norton was featured on the cover of the Spring 2012 Neuron, the West Virginia Journal of Science and Research.
