On April 26th, I’ll be giving a keynote addess at the Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum, a cross-disciplinary meeting organized by the Berkeley Nanotechnology Club and sponsored by the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Berkeley Nanosciences & Nanoengineering Institute, and the Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems, among others. The meeting will be Sunday, April 26, 2009, 9 am to 6:30 pm, at the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley, and the agenda is available.

Here’s the title and abstract for my talk:
Toward Modular Molecular Composite Nanosystems
Current nanoscale and atomically precise fabrication technologies — including structural DNA nanotechnology, protein engineering, nanolithography, and synthesis of nanoparticles, polyoxometalates, peptoid foldamers, and organic compounds, among others — can serve complementary structural and functional roles in self-assembled modular molecular composite nanosystems. I will describe current directions in research, potential near-term objectives, and prospects for using self-assembled nanosystems as tools for fabricating improved organic and inorganic components.
