Engineers Week 2006: NSF Research Highlights

Abstract:
NSF has a long history of supporting engineering, devoting more than $550 million dollars last year alone. The results of those investments have been rewarding, as the following 2005 highlights reveal. (Read about advances in: Nanoscale Diagnostic Sets Sights on Alzheimer's, Carbon Nanotubes Yield a New Class of Biological Sensors, Forensic technique leads to new method for creating nanofibers, and Self-Assembling Nano-Electronics Turn a Corner.)
