USC, Benedict Present Nanotechnology School

Abstract:
The USC NanoCenter and Benedict College present the South Carolina Citizen's School of Nanotechnology for this spring beginning March 7 on the Benedict campus.

"Nanotechnology is the science of doing things very fast and building things very small to make our world better," says Stacey Franklin Jones, dean of the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at Benedict.

Among the issues of concern to many people are nanomedicine, with its promises of fighting cancer, and the environmental implications of nanotechnology, including both risks and remediation.
