Advanced Nanotechnology

Think really big ideas – an elevator into outer space... the end of cancer. This is not Star Trek but the near future, possibly your future.

Probe deeper into these big challenges and the science that makes them possible – carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles targeted for cancer therapy. Build a carbon nanotube.

This engaging presentation and discussion will feature major innovations in nanotechnology, how they may impact your life, and related careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

Presenter: Alan Brown, PhD, MBA., Former Executive Director, PA NanoMaterials Commercialization Center

In 2006 he founded the Pennsylvania NanoMaterials Commercialization Center in Pittsburgh as a non-profit organization focused on commercializing the new field of nanotechnology. From 2006 until 2012, he managed and grew this organization from a vision defined by a public partnership of the major materials-based companies in the region: Alcoa, Bayer MaterialScience, US Steel and PPG Industries, along with the Pittsburgh Technology Council, and Pittsburgh’s two leading universities: Carnegie Mellon and University of Pittsburgh.
