Nanotechnology Town Hall Meetings

Nanotechnology has been heralded as having the potential to lead to the next industrial revolution. But, what is nanotechnology? What are the possible applications, and how might it impact our world? Learn more about this exciting new arena from some of the leaders in the field at the public Nanotechnology Town Hall Meetings—sponsored by NSEC, the International Institute for Nanotechnology, and the Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence.

The goal of these meetings is to provide an opportunity for the community to learn the fundamentals about nanotechnology and to explore the larger questions about the smallest technology. Each lecture by world-renowned scientists and engineers will be followed by your questions.

We invite you to join us! There is no charge, but advance registration is required. Call 847-467-4862 or register now >>
