Nanomedicine Challenge Grant

This challenge grant was successfully met, and partially supported writing the first volume of Nanomedicine, published in October, 1999. Foresight is now sponsoring a second Challenge Grant to support the completion of Volumes II and III of Nanomedicine.

$10,000 Challenge Grant needs $10,000 Matching Donations

Nanomedicine, to be published in three volumes, will be the first book to comprehensively address the technical issues involved in the medical applications of molecular nanotechnology and medical nanodevice design. The book outline and a sample chapter can be previewed on this Web site.

To speed the completion of this major project, Foresight is sponsoring a challenge grant to support the writing of Nanomedicine. Two donors have pledged to match all contributions, dollar for dollar, up to maximum of $10,000. Matching donations must be received by August 31.

Questions about medical applications of nanotechnology are among the most frequent questions directed to Foresight. If the application of nanotechnology to medicine is important to you, please consider making a matching contribution before August 31.
