Nanotechnology is increasingly important in our modern world, and now a part of our daily lives. For example, clear sunblock uses nanoparticles. In this course, we will discuss real-world applications and consequences of nanotechnology today, such as the ethical debate around CRISPR-CAS9 editing of human genomes, and the impact of nano in medicine. We will also discuss nanobiology, applications to drugs and energy, as well as new nanomaterials with unique properties. Furthermore, methods to observe and modify the nanoscale world will be discussed. We will also tour the nanofabrication facility in our building. This seminar will be accessible to first year students.
