Nanotechnology Experts to Speak at Inaugural Nano Today Conference in Singapore Organized by Nano Today and IBN

Singapore | Posted on July 30th, 2009

The Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), the world's first bioengineering and nanotechnology research institute, has partnered with Nano Today, a leading nanoscience and nanotechnology journal, published by Elsevier, with an impact factor of 8.795, to organize the 1st Nano Today Conference at Biopolis, Singapore from August 3-5, 2009.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology have been pushing the envelope in scientific research due to their vast potential for wide-ranging applications in fields such as electric, optical, magnetic and biomedical devices, chemical and biologics synthesis, energy generation and storage, as well as biomaterials and biomimetic systems.

Held over three days, the 1st Nano Today Conference is chaired by IBN Executive Director and Nano Today Editor-in-Chief, Professor Jackie Y. Ying. This conference will feature plenary lectures by 3 pioneers of the field, 30 invited talks by leading scientists from 26 internationally
renowned institutions, as well as over 200 contributed oral and poster presentations from 33 countries. The contributed presentations were selected from over 600 abstract submissions worldwide. As the inaugural conference, this event will provide a platform for nanoscience researchers to share and discuss the latest developments in their field. Over 450 delegates will be
attending the conference.

The three eminent Plenary Lecturers are:

Professor Herbert Gleiter
Senior Scientist and Institute Professor Institute of Nanotechnology Research Center Karlsruhe, Germany
Lecture Title: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: The Key to New Studies in
Other Areas of Science and Technology

Professor C. N. R. Rao
National Research Professor, Honorary President and Linus Pauling Research Professor Jawaharalal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research, India
Lecture Title: Graphene, The New Nanocarbon

Professor David A. Tirrell
Ross McCollum-William H. Corcoran Professor and Chair, Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, California Institute of Technology, USA
Lecture Title: Proteins That Nature Never Made

The conference topics include:

* Synthesis and Self-Assembly of Thin Films and Nanocrystals/Nanoparticles

* Functionalization and Size-Dependent Properties of Nanocrystals, Quantum Dots and Nanowires

* Processing and Templating of Nanotubes and Nanoporous Materials

* Tailoring of Polymeric Nanoparticles, Organic-Inorganic Nanocomposites and Biohybrids

* Design and Engineering of Structural and Functional Nanomaterials

* Nanosystems for Biological, Medical, Chemical, Catalytic, Energy, Environmental, Sensing, Diagnostic, Imaging and Magnetic Applications

Please refer to the annexes for the speakers' bios and talk abstracts. More information about the event and the speakers are available at www.nanotoday2009.com.

About Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology
The Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) was established in
2003 as a national research institute under the Agency for Science,
Technology and Research, Singapore, by Executive Director, Professor Jackie
Yi-Ru Ying. Prof. Ying was a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1992–2005). In 2008, Professor Ying
was recognized as one of "One Hundred Engineers of the Modern Era" by the
American Institute of Chemical Engineers for her groundbreaking work on
nanostructured systems, nanoporous materials and host matrices for quantum
dots and wires. Under her direction, IBN conducts research at the
cutting-edge of bioengineering and nanotechnology. IBN’s research programs
are geared towards linking multiple disciplines across engineering, science
and medicine to produce research breakthroughs that will improve healthcare
and our quality of life.
