Nanotech has quickly become a fascinating and extensive area of scientific research. This emerging field is blossoming with opportunity and great promise — from nanoscopic cars to a wide variety of other nanomachines including drills that can be used in targeted cancer treatments. By operating on the same nanoscale as biology, new levels of miniaturization and efficiency are being achieved, enabling human technologies to interact directly with sophisticated networks of biological machines in nature. As is the case with nanomachines that have long existed in the biological cell, so these human innovations exhibit the brilliance and creativity of their corresponding designers.
The Science & Culture Network Chapter in Southern California invites you to join a Friday, December 4th webinar to hear from nanomachine expert Dr. Richard Gunasekara as he explores these fascinating human technologies and how they interact with even more astounding innovations in nature. Dr. Gunasekara’s research involves nanomachines used to destroy antibiotic-resistant superbugs, as well as others that aid in cancer and COVID-19 treatments. Most recently, he has turned his attention to the use of nanomachines to fight viruses.
