Nebraska Scientists to Showcase Nanotechnology, Economic Development at Int. Bio Convention

Abstract:
In Nebraska, research on nanoparticle sensors with sensitivity rivaling human fingers could give robots a delicate sense of touch. A computer-aided orthopedic surgical system could enable surgeons to do faster, less invasive, more precise bone cutting and alignment of implants, which may increase the life of artificial joints. And the nation's only 10-bed patient biocontainment unit is setting the standard for academic institution preparedness, and antimicrobial drug discovery.

These discoveries and updates on dozens of other bioscience research and business partnerships are part of the Nebraska Pavilion at the BIO 2007 Annual International Convention at Boston May 6-9. A team of more than 25 Nebraska scientists, policymakers, university leaders and economic development experts will be on hand in Boston to demonstrate Nebraska technology, research and development to 20,000 international visitors.
