Nanofabrication achieved on a biological substrate

Dip-pen nanolithography, a process being developed for ultrasmall feature definition on semiconductor ICs, may blaze new trails in medicine as well, if preliminary work reported at the fall meeting of the Materials Research Society can be turned into practical procedures. Albena Ivanisevic, a bioengineer at Purdue University's Bindley Bioscience Center, described a process in which amino acid-based nanostructures were assembled on retinal tissue.
