Dr. Ruoting Yang in Molecular Psychiatry on biotypes for PTSD
Geneva Scientist Dr. Ruoting Yang first-authored a manuscript published in Molecular Psychiatry
on biotypes for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the first of their kind of any psychological
disorder. Dr. Yang is a Computational Biologist, specializing in
artificial intelligence, software, and biomarker research.
He is part of the PTSD Systems
Biology Consortium, a network of world-renowned scientists from the
Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR), Harvard, New York
University (NYU), University of California San Francisco (UCSF),
Institute for Systems Biology, and Mount Sinai Hospital, who are devoted
to identifying biomarkers for PTSD. In a published manuscript titled “Epigenetic biotypes of post-traumatic stress disorder in war-zone exposed veteran and active duty males,”
researchers used blood tests from male, combat-exposed veterans over a
period of three years to identify two distinct biotypes which had
differing genetic markers.
Dr. Yang is also the
co-founder of FITCI-based Nanobiofab, along with his wife, Dr. Xiaonao Liu. NanoBioFab uses a patented nanotechnololgy platform to develop wearable,
intelligent, nanotech-based healthcare and medical devices to provide
accurate, real-time data using the body’s own skin vapor-print.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE ANNOUNCES 51 “BUILD TO SCALE” GRANTS TOTALING $47 MILLIONTO FUEL INNOVATION AND TECH-BASED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Contact: EDA Public Affairs Department, (202) 482-4085
October 5, 2022
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced that the Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding 51 “Build to Scale” grants – totaling $47 million – to organizations that support technology entrepreneurs, catalyze innovation and fuel economic growth.
EDA’s “Build to Scale” program provides annual grants that aim to accelerate technology entrepreneurship by increasing inclusive access to entrepreneurial support and startup capital. The 2022 awardees will leverage an additional $48 million in matching funds from a variety of private and public sector sources. These EDA investments support advanced manufacturing, bioscience, clean energy and blue economy clusters in regions throughout the United States.
"Strengthening technology ecosystems are a critical key to the Biden Administration's efforts to build a stronger America,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. “Innovation and entrepreneurship have long been keys to American success and will continue to strengthen our collective economic and national security, as well as individual prosperity and well-being.”
"EDA is proud to partner with this year's 'Build to Scale' grantees as they invest in entrepreneurs and create equitable access to capital in their communities," said Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development Alejandra Y. Castillo. "These projects will give the next generation of industry-leading companies a seminal boost that will result in job creation and private investment – potentially transforming a regional economy and creating economic opportunity beyond what we can foresee.”
The 2022 Build to Scale program was comprised of two competitions––the Venture Challenge and the Capital Challenge. The Venture Challenge supports programs that enable high-growth technology entrepreneurship and foster inclusive access to proven entrepreneurship support models. The Capital Challenge increases access to capital in communities where risk capital is in short supply by providing operational support for early-stage investment funds, networks, and training programs that focus on both traditional and hybrid equity-based financing.
