Special Symposium

Nanotechnology is the use of materials with fundamental length scales less than 100 nm in at least one dimension. Nanotechnology has begun to revolutionalize materials used for many traditional science and engineering applications (including catalysis, mechanical structures, electronics, processing, etc.). However, the use of nanotechnology in biomedical applications remains at its infancy.

The key driving force is the complementary length scale between biological structures that range from the 10's of nanometers (proteins, DNA, viruses) to the micron scale (cells and cellular assemblies) and the new capabilities of nanosystems to manipulate and control such feature sizes within our environment.

This symposium will cover the recently publicized advantages of using nanomaterials in various biomedical applications including as implants, tissue engineering materials, etc.
