The DC/NoVA Chapter of the IEEE-EDS is pleased to co-sponsor The Atlantic Nano Forum and announces the next event:
Innovative Technologies II
presented by the three renowned nano-technologists:
Dr. Steve Wilson
Executive VP, Luna Innovations
Dr. Vinayak Dravid
Director, Atomic and Nanoscale Characterization Experimental Center (NUANCE), Northwestern University
Dr. Anita Goel
Founder and CEO of Nanobiosym
Dr. Steven Wilson will discuss emerging applications in fullerenes and nanotubes. Dr. Vinayak Dravid will discuss emerging smart bio-chem nanosensors - nano-dots to nano cantilevers. And Dr. Anita Goel will discuss breakthrough nanoscale technologies to detect, amplify and identify trace amounts of biowarfare agents.
Dr. Stephen R. Wilson is the Executive Vice President for
the newly-formed Nanomaterials Division of Luna
Recent years have witnessed a remarkable explosion in
synthesis, characterization and properties of novel functional nanostructures.
While intricate, precise and integrated systems approaches for such
nanostructures at nanoscale precision and accuracy
are still evolving, sufficient progress has been made to demonstrate proof-of
concept devices based on functional nanostructures. Going beyond mere
miniaturization, emerging nanoscale bio-chem sensors exhibit intriguing but potentially useful
performance, with significant implications for on-site. real-time,
remotely addressable, multiplexed and cost effective sensor systems. Dr. Dravid received a Btech degree in
Metallurgy from the Indian Institute of Technology,
Nanobiosym focuses on exploiting emerging
nanotechnologies to provide innovative solutions to problems in the biotech and
biomedical industry. Their current efforts include the development of
prototypes for advanced diagnostic devices. Nanobiosym
also developed the breakthrough nanoscale
technologies to detect, amplify, and identify trace amounts of biowarfare agents. Dr. Goel
completed her Ph.D. in Physics at
