Linking Proteins, Wires, Dots, and Molecules into Useful Devices

Philadelphia, PA | Posted on November 11th, 2008

Through contemporary art, historical artifacts, and large-scale models, Molecules That Matter showcases ten organic molecules that profoundly altered modern life. In conjunction with this fascinating exhibition, five speakers—all leaders in their fields—will address the science in everyday experiences and the promise and peril of discovery and innovation.

The Molecules That Matter lecture series features a range of speakers who will offer perspectives on individual molecules, the role of science in our lives, and the promises and perils of discovery and innovation.

Dawn A. Bonnell is the Trustee Professor of Materials Science at the University of Pennsylvania, where she also serves as director of the Nano/Bio Interface Center. Bonnell leads the center's Small Times Journal, which is ranked number one in the nation in nanotechnology research. Currently Bonnell's research involves the assembly of complex nanostructures and nanometer-scale electronic phenomena.

Previously Bonnell worked at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. She has authored or coauthored over 180 papers and edited several books. Bonnell received three degrees from the University of Michigan: a B.S.E. in materials science and engineering, an M.S. in engineering materials, and a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering.
