The Washington life science industry in has enjoyed an impressive evolution and Eng3 has benefited from being part of this technology landscape.
Eng3 is proud to be part of Washington State’s thriving life science industry. Washington has long been known as a national center of science and innovation. In addition to the aerospace and computing industries, Washington is also recognized for advances in health and medicine. It makes history with accomplishments as diverse as the first modern treadmill and bone marrow transplants. The University of Washington has been, and remains, a cornerstone of the region’s innovation. Seattle is recognized for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the oldest cancer prevention program in the US, and Seattle Children’s Hospital, a world-class organization that dates back to 1907. These and a number of other outstanding institutions have set the stage for relative newcomers like the Institute for Systems Biology, and the Allen Institute for Brain Science to make their mark. The combined output of research institutions has fostered innovation in the region for well over 100 years.
Life Science Washington has charted the genealogy of numerous Washington life science technology companies. The green dot on the poster marks Eng3’s position. Eng3 sits alone because it is not a descendant of any of the other organization.
As indicated in the chart, research centers have served as the foundation for hundreds of Washington life science companies. In the private sector, Washington is home to more than 550 life science technology companies that employ more than 25,000 people – roughly half of them in research and development. While Eng3 is a relatively small player in this scene, we are honored to be part of it and have certainly benefited from the scientific talent in the area.
The work of Gerald Pollack and his team at the University of Washington has been of great value to Eng3. Their research into ordered water, also known as Exclusion Zone (EZ) water, is at the heart of how NanoVi technology works. Ordered water is essential for proper protein folding in cells and thus NanoVi technology.
2018 marks Eng3’s 15th year as a member of the Washington life science technology community. Hans Eng founded Eng3 in 2003 after moving to the United States from Berlin. His years of experience with advanced medical technologies and his background in material sciences allowed Hans to develop NanoVi™ technology, which was released in 2010. His business partner, Rowena Gates, joined Eng3 in 2005. Rowena brought 10 years of experience in Seattle high tech industry to Eng3. Hans, Rowena, and the rest of the team at Eng3 look forward to many more years of helping others through medical technology and contributing to Washington’s life science technology industry.
