Chicago, IL | Posted on September 20, 2006
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.
