Sixteen-year-old nanotechnologist Amy Chyao won top prize at the 2010 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for her work on a nanoparticle to attack cancer cells and joined three other winners in Michelle Obama’s box during the State of the Union speech.
US National Nanotechnology Initiative wants your comments on its strategic plan.
A book on nanotechnology education and workforce training written by Judith Light Feather and Miguel Aznar
We have reports from a couple of Foresight members who have toured the Allosphere, part of the California NanoSystems Institute at UC Santa Barbara, and it sounds truly impressive. From their website: The AlloSphere, a 30-foot diameter sphere built inside a 3-story near-to-anechoic (echo free) cube, allows for synthesis, manipulation, exploration and analysis of large-scale… Continue reading Check out the Allosphere at California NanoSystems Institute, UCSB
Foresight Research Analyst and Technical Editor James Lewis has tracked the careers of those receiving Foresight’s student award. Here are his findings on the careers of a few of these gifted young researchers: We at Foresight find it gratifying to track the subsequent careers of those who have won our nanotechnology-related prizes and awards, in… Continue reading Foresight's student award-winners go on to great things
For years we’ve watched academic degree programs in nanotechnology being announced piecemeal, or in partial lists. Now it looks like Nanowerk has stepped up to the task of keeping a complete list, sorted by level of degree and country. See it here: http://www.nanowerk.com/nanotechnology/nanotechnology_degrees.php A handy chart allows users to click through to see all the… Continue reading Finally: all nanotech degree programs listed on one site
Here at Foresight, we’re always trying to help those looking to move their careers in the direction of nanotechnology. Now the Wall Street Journal is predicting that this should pay off: Kelley McDonald has always loved exploring new terrain. In home videos as early as age 3, “I’m always off by myself, looking under rocks… Continue reading Nanotech = Hot job of 2018, says Wall Street Journal
One way to reach molecular machine systems is to get really, really good at protein engineering. If that’s your goal, you’ll want to be in Boston on May 17-21 for PEGS 2010, “the essential protein engineering summit”. Not sure if this is your pathway? Just reading the talk titles is educational. And they have great… Continue reading The protein engineering path to molecular manufacturing
Ted Greenwald continues his Singularity University executive program coverage over at Wired: These days, though, Merkle is setting his sights much higher. Over the past few years he has put together a theoretical system for building diamond, atom by atom. It involves nine molecular tools and methane/hydrogen feedstock on a diamond substrate. He has analyzed… Continue reading More Merkle at Singularity University
