Science and Society - Next Show




Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society

San Diego, CA | Posted on January 09, 2006

Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 01/11/06, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.

Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:

  • Dr. Jeremy Ramsden, Chair of Nanotechnology, Cranfield University
  • Dr. Graham Cooks, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, Purdue University
  • Dr. Michael Chang, President and CEO, Optimer Pharmaceuticals

Dr. Ramsden discusses the likely near-term and long-term impacts of nanotechnology, the importance of public debate on nanotechnology, as well as his team’s work on hybrid living/nonliving systems and integrated optics for sensing and actuation.

Dr. Cooks discusses uses of mass spectrometry in industry and his lab’s new ambient mass spectrometry method. This new method may be used in real-time tissue analysis during surgery, as well as in explosives detection (at airports, for example). Dr. Cooks’s team is building a handheld mass spec device, which could be used as a personal health monitor.

Dr. Chang discusses the current climate for starting and running a biotechnology company, the likelihood of a biotech firm developing a commercially successful product, and Optimer’s carbohydrate-based cancer vaccine licensed from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
