Nanotech materials, start-ups highlighted at ACS symposium Aug. 19 in Boston

Your annual physical examination of the future may include a blood barcode scan, which instantly provides the doctor with information to diagnose a wide-range of diseases. New generations of novel polymers will be available to replace damaged blood vessels. And in a security-minded world outside, tiny but ultra-sensitive sensors will monitor the environment for bioterrorism agents.

These and other potentially revolutionary research developments of the future will be on the agenda Aug. 19 when five renowned chemists and inventors gather to describe the challenges and opportunities for commercializing new technologies. The elite panel will be part of a special Presidential symposium, Material Innovations: from Nanotech to Biotech and Beyond, scheduled for the 234th national meeting of the American Chemical Society.

The speakers include Charles Lieber and George Whitesides, of Harvard University; David Tirrell, of the California Institute of Technology; and Chad Mirkin, of Northwestern University.

These distinguished researchers have pioneered the development of cutting-edge technologies that promise to improve human health and productivity in the future, says ACS President Catherine T. Hunt, who will preside at the symposi
