Nanotechnology Expert Discusses the Latest in Nanomedicine at Rochester Museum & Science Center
ROCHESTER, NY—Attendees to the final Richard C. Shultz Science on the Edge lecture at the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) explore the innovative landscape of nanotechnology. The speaker, Dr. Sara Brenner, is the assistant vice president for nanohealth initiatives and assistant professor of nanobioscience at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The lecture takes place at 7:30pm on Wednesday, April 16 in the RMSC Eisenhart Auditorium.
Through the presentation, The 21st Century Nanotechnology Landscape: Health, Safety, and Nanomedicine Applications, attendees will learn how nanomedicine holds promise for truly innovative treatments. From an economic perspective, nanotechnology applications are projected to impact nearly every known industry as well as create entirely new industrial clusters. The rapid growth and projected acceleration of nanotechnology also creates urgency in understanding, predicting and managing the potential health risks associated with occupational, environmental and consumer exposures to nanomaterials. Attendees explore Dr. Brenner's research and the impact of nanomaterials worldwide.
Dr. Brenner's research and initiatives aim to develop novel nanotechnology applications in the life sciences, including medicine and public health. In addition, Dr. Brenner leads health and safety research initiatives related to nanoparticle and nanomaterial exposures in the workplace, consumer marketplace and environment.
Each Science on the Edge presentation is followed by a brief reception where visitors enjoy snacks, beverages and meet the presenter. All lectures are held in the Eisenhart Auditorium on the RMSC campus at 657 East Avenue. Ticket prices include:
