From Children's Bladders To The iPhone

Abstract:
One of the most embarrassing problems a child can suffer from is an uncontrollable bladder. For seven children with defective bladders resulting from spina bifida, Dr. Anthony Atala found a solution using nanotechnology. In experimental operations from 1999 to 2001, Atala took pieces of their malfunctioning bladders and grew them new ones.

Atala's work, which he is still developing at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University, is one of the most stunning examples of how nanotechnology--the science of manipulating matter on an atomic scale--is profoundly reshaping scores of areas of science. Atala was one of the keynote speakers at the Forbes/Wolfe Nanotechnology Forum held this week in Albuquerque, N.M.
