The development of artificial molecular machines for nanotechnology will be aided by better ways to look at how prototype molecular machines work. Japanese researchers have succeeded in visualizing the motion of a molecular rotor…
A nanotech method to capture cancer cells and remove them from the body might be useful for combating ovarian cancer, in particular…
In another addition to the long list of advantages of graphene for nanotech applications, researchers at Columbia University have demonstrated that it is the strongest known material…
Single walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) bundles may provide a nanotech method to activate certain cancer-fighting white blood cells outside a patient's body in the hope that they will more effectively fight the patient's cancer upon being returned to the patient…
A nanotech approach assembles flexible electronic circuits from random networks of single-walled carbon nanotubes. The method relies on elaborate calculations to determine the optimum size of small- to medium-sized integrated circuits so that contaminating metallic nanotubes do not short circuit the network of semiconducting nanotubes…

Do you believe that nanotechnology will give society the ability to tackle the hard challenges facing humanity? What's your priority for nanotechnology: cancer treatments and longevity therapies, sustainable energy, clean water, a restored environment, space development, or "zero waste" manufacturing? Or perhaps there are potential nanotech scenarios you would like to prevent.
If you would like to help influence the direction of this powerful technology, please consider becoming a member of Foresight Nanotech Institute. With your support, Foresight will continue to educate the general public on beneficial nanotechnology and what it will mean to our society.
Foresight note: One free conference ticket is available to a Foresight Senior Associate only for the following conference. Please contact Alicia Isaac either at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 650.289.0860.
Nanotech Northern Europe 2008
Nanotech Northern Europe brings together the field's top scientists and leading international companies in order to advance the beneficial use of nanotechnology. The 2008 event concentrates around three application areas:
The program also features sessions on:
National Nano Engineering Conference 2008
The National Nano Engineering Conference 2008 (NNEC) is the premier event focused on current and future developments in engineering innovations at the nanoscale, as well as the commercialization of nanotechnology.
Presentations on new technologies and their commercial applications in the following disciplines:
