Foresight Institute’s 2015 Workshop on Atomic Precision for Medical Applications

May 29-31, 2015, in Palo Alto, California

About the Event:

This was a highly interactive and stimulating 2-1/2 day invitational meeting focused on long-term prospects for revolutionary advances in medical applications based on improved precision in our control of matter, and how to speed current research in that direction.

Wide-ranging thinkers, firmly grounded in a deep and broad understanding of current science will facilitate future research directions, encourage the formation of new multidisciplinary teams, and speed nanoscale advances in medical applications.

This was a private, invitation-only event.
