Just as Canada responded to the threat of SARS by sequencing the DNA of the SARS virus, we can respond to the challenge of safe drinking water using our expertise in the emerging field of nanotechnology.
Last year, the Canadian Program on Genomics and Global Health, based at the University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics, surveyed 63 scientists from 26 countries about the applications of nanotechnology with the greatest potential to assist the developing world. Water treatment and remediation was the third top answer (after energy and agriculture).
