U of Pennsylvania will establish nanotech center

The U.S. National Science Foundation has awarded $1.45 million to scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, establishing a new Nanotechnology Science and Engineering Center that will seek out the building blocks of next-generation nanostructures. The four-year grant will fund research on how simple biological molecules organize themselves into complex structures and the development of synthetic self-assembling molecules. Details are available in this press release from 24 July 2001.
