Hoping to turn the science of the extremely small into a huge payoff down the road, Maryland lawmakers introduced legislation Tuesday to create a fund to coordinate efforts to develop what's known as nano-biotechnology.
It's a big word for something very, very small. Nanotechnology involves developing new products by changing or creating components at the atomic and molecular level. At that scale, materials are measured in nanometers, or billionths of a meter.
The idea behind nano-biotechnology is to apply that science to biology to produce new methods of drug delivery and other innovative products.
Lawmakers are hoping to capitalize on Maryland's proximity to leading research institutes and the nation's capital to attract innovative businesses and high-tech jobs to the state.
