The Royal Society of Chemistry
11 November - Bio-nanotechnology, English Heritage Lecture Theatre, Savile Row, London.

Nanotechnology offers many challenges to chemists; indeed their skills are critical in many potential new technologies. Nowhere is this more true than in the biological applications. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together leading UK scientists working on the biological applications of nanotechnology. Through it, it is hoped to begin forging a definable community with interests in the area, and to generate impetus for continued activities into the future.

Date: 11 November, 2004
Location: English Heritage Lecture Theatre, Savile Row, London
