Rice University provost tells Congress that federal funding for research is critical

Abstract:
A top administrator at Rice University advised members of Congress today of the growing importance of nanotechnology research in the United States, urging the senators to supply funding for a national initiative to help bolster the field.

Testifying before a Senate Committee on Science, Commerce and Transportation, Rice University Provost George McLendon said federal support of the National Nanotechnology Initiative is critical for new development of nanotechnology.

"Federal support for fundamental science is the critical first step," McLendon said. The partnerships, he added, "can translate these fundamental discoveries in commercial practice to provide sustainable social benefits."
