Nov. 18-21 nanotechnology conference in Irvine, Calif.

Research on nanotechnology is under way in a wide range of disciplines, from cell biology to computer engineering to optics. At this conference, 100 leading researchers will gather in focus groups to discuss and try to solve some major challenges facing nanotechnology today, including the building of a nano-system that can multiply and isolate RNA or DNA; the building of a synthetic self-replicator; and the development of a system to detect disease in vivo. Conference attendees will be eligible to compete for $1 million in research grants.
