Nobel laureate to speak at UF

Abstract:
Nobel laureate Sir Harold Kroto, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Florida State University and a fellow of the Royal Society, will address faculty, staff, students and guests during the keynote presentation of the College of Dentistry's fifth annual Research Day, to be held April 13.

Kroto's presentation, "Science, Society and Sustainability," will begin at noon in Room 101 of the UF Cancer & Genetics Research Complex and is available for viewing online as a live Webcast on the college's Web site, www.dental.ufl.edu.

Kroto received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996 for the discovery of C60 buckminsterfullerene, a new form of carbon that provided the foundation for modern nanoscience. He is a thought-provoking speaker with insights on sustainability and the role of science, engineering and technology in facilitating a sustainable society.
