Nanotechnology - No Small Matter

Although nanotechnology is a relatively new science, it has numerous applications in our daily lives, ranging from consumer goods to medicine to improving the environment.

In medicine, for example, nanoparticles are being employed to deliver drugs and other substances to specific types of cells, such as cancer cells. Environmental applications of nanotechnology include cleaning up of pollution and making alternative energy sources more cost effective. Nanoelectronics allows us to improve display screens on electronic devices and increase the density of memory chips.

Join us for an exciting panel discussion with experts from Germany and the U.S. who will present their cutting-edge research and address these important questions.
