Nanotech, biotech at key juncture

What the world needs now is a cheaper buckyball. At least that's what Gordon Fowler believes. Fowler is the chief executive of a start-up called Nano-C, which produces molecules called buckminsterfullerenes, or buckyballs. They sound funny, but one day they could save your life. This is the juncture of nanotech and biotech. Many researchers think nano-scale molecules like Nano-C's buckyballs, which look like a scaffold in the shape of a soccer ball, have great potential as the core component of a new class of drugs.
