Will Alberta's energy boom revolutionize higher education?
One of the key areas the province is betting on is the emerging science of nanotechnology - the manipulation of molecules and atoms that can be applied to a broad range of areas from computer chips to pharmaceuticals.
Jillian Buriak, an award-winning chemistry professor, is an up-and-coming star in this field that the University of Alberta snagged in 2003.
Nanotechnology is like the "grease in the wheels," explained Dr. Buriak, an easy-to-like bundle of energy who negotiates a busy university coffee shop with a pair of hiking boots swinging from her bag.
