National nanotech expert to address UW-Madison conference

MADISON - Jeffrey P. Schloss, an expert in the application of nanotechnology in the health-care field, will be the keynote speaker at "Bionanotechnology," the second annual Wisconsin Nanotechnology Conference, which will be held Thursday, June 3, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

University faculty engaged in the study and uses of nanotechnology will gather with representatives of business and industry for the all-day conference in the Grainger Technology Transfer Auditorium in Engineering Hall.

The College of Engineering, the National Science Foundation Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, and the Office of Corporate Relations at UW-Madison are presenting the conference.

The conference will explore the emerging world of bionanotechnology and how it is being used today in the life sciences. Sessions will also showcase the research of several UW-Madison faculty who are working at the intersection of nanotechnology and biotechnology, an area considered by many experts to be ripe for development by business and industry.

Schloss is program director for technology development coordination in the Division of Extramural Research in the National Institutes of Health, and is a leader in the National Nanotechnology Initiative. He also represents the NIH on the National Science and Technology Council's subcommittee on Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology, planning for the National Nanotechnology Initiative. He co-chairs the working group for the NIH Nanomedicine Roadmap Initiative.

Steve Crosby, publisher and editor of Small Times Magazine, the trade journal of the nanotech industry, will be the luncheon speaker at the conference. He will discuss his publication's recent report on the state of the industry.
