Second Nano Café to highlight medical nanotechnologies

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on June 19th, 2007

UC Santa Barbara's NSF Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) are inviting the Santa Barbara community to attend a casual forum called "NanoCafé" to discuss medical applications of nanotechnology on Wednesday, July 18, 2007 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Coffee Cat in downtown Santa Barbara.

This NanoCafé will provide a brief overview of how nanotechnologies can be applied in medicine and then open discussion. Speaking will be CNS Director Barbara Herr Harthorn and UCSB Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering Patrick Daugherty.

Participants are invited to listen and participate in an information question-and-answer session. No science background is required to attend the NanoCafé.

Nanotechnology is the manipulation of materials on a very small scale. With it, scientists can create new technologies to make, among other things, better and faster information systems, energy systems, and medical devices. For instance, medical researchers can create molecular devices for new medical therapies, in vivo imaging, and new molecular drug delivery strategies to treat illness and disease, including cancer. Nanotechnology is also, however, an emerging science with little known about its risks and implications. Home to CNS and CNSI, UC Santa Barbara is one of the leading international centers for nanotechnology research.

The NanoCafé series is a quarterly event sponsored jointly by CNS and CNSI. It is based on a successful model developed in 2006 by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and used to introduce citizens to the basic concepts of nanoscience and the accompanying societal issues.

This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. RSVPs are requested.
