Nanotechnology for Energy and Advanced Medicine Seminar by Prof. Samuel Stupp

27 May 2016
Professor Stupp will discuss in his lecture recent scientific advances that will impact the development of new technologies for advanced medicine and energy. These advances are rooted in research on nanotechnology, chemistry and materials science, all areas of great strength at Northwestern University. One example in advanced medicine research will be the design of new therapies to regenerate tissues and organs such as bone, the brain, heart muscle, cartilage, and others. In the area of energy, Professor Stupp will discuss efforts to create new materials that can generate fuels or convert carbon dioxide into useful chemicals when exposed to the sun.
