On September 5, 2006 Institute for NanoBioTechnology Director Peter Searson and Associate Director Denis Wirtz sat down behind their computers for an interview with Marc Pelletier and Leo Laporte, hosts of Futures in Biotech on the popular podcast network TWiT.tv (This Week in Technology).
The episode got lost but has recently been re-discovered, "I was going through my hard drive and I stumbled on a large audio file. It was one of the LOST EPISODES!!! I had actually made a backup!" Pelletier writes on the TWiT website.
The interview covers a wide range of subjects related to the application of nanotechnology to biomedicine. "They are doing some outstanding work, developing an area of biotechnology that brings together the best of materials science with biotechnology, focusing on medical applications.", writes Pelletier.
Since the interview the number of INBT related faculty, researcher from all divisions of Johns Hopkins University that are affiliated with INBT, has grown to 143.
