Nanoshells inventor Dr Naomi Halas speaks on nano-pH meters at Illinois Institute
Illinois Institute of Technology Dept. of
Biology, Chemistry & Physical Sciences
Kilpatrick Series lecture on nanotechnology
featuring Dr. Naomi Halas, professor in
Electrical and Computer Engineering and
Chemistry, and Director of the Laboratory for
Nanophotonics (LANP) at Rice University, Houston.
The lecture takes place on Friday October 6, is open to the public, and free registration is required: www.iit.edu/alumni/alumnifest/2006/register.php
Best known as the inventor of nanoshells, Halas was recently featured in National Geographic for her groundbreaking work in nanotechnology. Most recently, she was lead researcher in the development of a nano-sized pH meter with wide applicability to biologists, including non-invasive ëoptical biopsiesí to determine the malignancy of tumors through pH changes inside living tissue and cells.
Dr. Halasís team included IIT assistant professor Sandra Bishnoi.
Halas is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and recipient of the National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award and ěCancer Innovatorî Award from the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs of the U.S. Department of Defense.
