Imagine a world where microscopic organisms roam the human body, devouring harmful cholesterol and fats within the bloodstream.
Now envision a scenario in which super-small enzymes are deployed to quickly and safely consume hazardous materials like oil spills or nuclear wastes.
Sounds like something out of a movie or a sci-fi novel, right?
Well, science fiction is rapidly becoming science fact as nanotechnology is poised to transform the worlds of medicine, health care and consumer electronics.
Explore the technology that will make this possible with nanotech expert P. Terry Murray, Ph.D. Murray, a scientist at the University of Dayton Research Institute. He will be the guest speaker for the next “Pub Science” presentation, a monthly series of informal learning programs sponsored by the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery.
The series, which kicked off last December, was created as a fun way for anyone to learn about science and technology in a relaxed, informal setting. Previous topics discussed were cryopreservation and forensic science.
Pub Science-Nanotechnology is Feb. 9 UPDATE Feb. 16 , at Blind Bob’s in the Oregon District. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. and will continue until all audience questions are answered.
Admission is free, though donations are encouraged.
Come out and discover why bigger is not always better!
