NJIT Electrical Engineering Professor Haim Grebel, who will be honored tonight by NJIT for his research, will speak in a free, live webcast about the future of nanotechnology and his research. The event, NJIT's most important research honor, culminates in the award of a $10,000 research prize to Grebel.
The live webcast will be available to viewers and listeners from starting at 5:30 p.m. ET. Viewers from throughout the world may tune in to hear and see Grebel from 5:50 -- 6: 15 p.m. when he takes the podium to highlight aspects of his work with and the future uses of nanotechnology.

The event will end about 6:30 p.m. ET.
Grebel's talk will highlight a platform he has developed which uses nanotechnology to detect viruses. He'll also touch upon creating nano circuits using carbon nanotubes, nanotechnology for corrosion protection and the future of artificial structures using nanotechnology.
The New Jersey Institute of Technology Excellence in Research Prize and Medal is awarded annually by the NJIT Board of Overseers. This year will be the fourth annual presentation.
Grebel's work has produced four patent awards, more than 90 scholarly papers and a dozen plus invited presentations. The Department of Defense, National Science Foundation and NASA have supported his work.
This November, Grebel will speak at the annual conference of the Society of Glycobiologists in Seattle. http://www.glycobiology.org/AnnualConference/GeneralInformation/tabid/55/Default.aspx He'll discuss the detection of human and avian flu viruses using graphene-coated infrared platforms. Glycobiologists study sugars and the roles they play in bi
