CMU to host nanotechnology workshop that will shape national policy

MOUNT PLEASANT, MI | Posted on September 12th, 2007

Information gathered at the workshop will be used in shaping national legislative policy on nanotechnology issues.

The Sept. 24 and 25 workshop "Periodic Patterns, Relationships and Categories of Well-Defined Nanoscale Building Blocks" will be held at the National Dendrimer Center in the CMU Center for Applied Research and Technology's research facility in Mount Pleasant.

Featured speakers include Mihail C. Roco, senior advisor of the National Science Foundation, Piotr Grodzinski, National Institutes of Health, and Scott McNeil, director of the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory.

The special guests, as well as several other experts in the field, will help lead discussions about documented examples of nano-periodicity patterns existing within and between known nano-building block categories such as dendrimers, quantum dots, nanotubes, fullerenes, viruses, proteins and DNA/RNA.

Critical nano issues on a variety of other topics also will be presented at the workshop.

For more information or to reserve a seat, call 989-774-3871 by Sept. 20.
