Home > Press > Symposium on nanomedicine to introduce new nanotech facility office at WCMC

Abstract:
To bring Cornell's medical researchers closer to cutting-edge nanotechnology techniques and to help forge intercampus research collaborations, the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF) has opened a branch at New York's Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC).

Symposium on nanomedicine to introduce new nanotech facility office at WCMC

ITHACA, NY | Posted on September 13th, 2008

The opening of the office will be marked by a nanomedicine symposium, Sept. 24 from 2 to 5:30 p.m. at WCMC. The event will introduce CNF and its staff, showcase microscale and nanoscale technologies, and promote research collaborations between the Ithaca and New York City campuses.

"We are responding to a trend we see in our user base; namely, an increasing number of people taking advantage of nano and microfabrication techniques for clinical and basic life sciences research," said George Malliaras, the Lester B. Knight Director of CNF.

The symposium will include remarks by Malliaras, speakers and a poster presentation. Keynote speakers will be Michael Shuler, Cornell's Samuel B. Eckert Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Lance Kam, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia University.

CNF is one of the nation's premier nanofabrication facilities, supporting a broad range of nanoscale science and technology projects with state-of-the-art equipment, resources and expert staff. Housed in Duffield Hall on Cornell's Ithaca campus and open 24 hours a day, the facility boasts more than 700 users doing nanofabrication, synthesis, computation and characterization of nanoscale devices and systems.

Preregistration for the event is not necessary.
