Description:

Report of a workshop seeking research community input on NNI research at the intersection of nanoscale science and technology and biology, held October 9-11, 2003.

This NNI report includes a particular focus on biomedical applications of nanotechnology.  The meeting was jointly sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and—through the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office – other member agencies of the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee.


Nanotechnology Fact

The term "nanomaterial" refers to nanoscale materials, or materials that contain nanoscale structures internally or on their surfaces. These can include engineered (or man-made) nanometer-scale objects such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, and nanofilms, as well as naturally occurring nanoparticles such as volcanic ash, sea spray, and smoke.
