Mayor Larry Langford hopes a tiny technology has a big impact on Birmingham's work force.
Langford is teaming with an Illinois company to create a training program for nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is basically engineering on the molecular scale. It's being studied for a range of applications, from creating lighter, stronger building materials to designing microscopic drug-delivery capsules that can target a certain part of the body.
The mayor met last week with officials from NanoInk Inc., which designs equipment for scientists to use in their labs for a range of nanotechnology applications. Company officials will be back in town May 18 to meet with leaders from area colleges and universities to help develop a plan to train students to work in nanotechnology, Langford said.
