Integration and Invention Frontiers of Nanotechnology and Biotechnology

Nanotechnology, the manipulation of matter on a nanometer length scale to create new properties, has attracted tremendous attention among researchers in a variety of disciplines. The interface between nanotechnology and biology provides some of the most exciting opportunities in research today, including new ways to detect and diagnose disease, new ways to deliver therapy, and new ways to probe basic biological processes.

On January 18, 2008, an array of stimulating speakers and members of Hunter College and the surrounding community convened to discuss opportunities at this interface, at the 21st Annual International Symposium of the college's Center for Study of Gene Structure and Function.
