MIT scientist launches special nanoscience symposia at ACS National Meeting

Salt Lake City, UT | Posted on March 18th, 2009

Her presentation will launch more than 135 symposia on various aspects of nanoscience to be held over the next five days. The symposia are in the areas of General Nanoscience, Green Nanoscience, Safety Nanoscience and Materials/Applications.

Belcher's research, NANO 1, will be presented at 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on March 22, at the Salt Palace Convention Center, Hall 2.

Angela M. Belcher, Ph.D, is Germeshausen Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Biological Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Mass.

NANO 1 Presentation Title: "Nanoscience. From Nature and Back Again: Giving New Life to Materials for Energy" (No abstract available.)

Among the numerous nanotechnology symposia at the meeting is a special Presidential Symposium, (*PRES 1150-1188) "Naturally Nano," to be held Tuesday, March 24, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Marriott City Center, Capitol A. ACS President Thomas H. Lane, Ph.D., will deliver the concluding remarks at this symposium.

*NOTE TO REPORTERS: "PRES 1150-1188" refers to the corresponding abstract numbers in the Presidential symposium of the ACS national meeting program. ALL PRESENTATIONS IN THIS SYMPOSIUM ARE EMBARGOED FOR 8:30 a.m., Mountain Time.
