2. InnovationThere is nothing more difficult toplan, more doubtful of success,more dangerous to manage thanthe creation of a new system Machiavelli (1469-1527)(overhead template) 2 3. Where doesNanotechnology fit in the innovation game?(overhead template) 3 4. (overhead template) 4 5. Nano Dreams.A vision of whatcould be possible(overhead template) 5 6. Nanotechnology DefinitionNanotechnology is defined by the USGovernment as involving:1) research and development at the atomic, molecular and sub-molecular levels in the scale of 1-100 nm in scale2) creating or using structures, devices and systems with novel properties and functions,3) that are controlled or manipulated at the atomic scale.(overhead template) 6 7. But nanoengineering is much more!An Entirely New Toolbox Of Engineering Capabilities Has Been Opened Up For Us To Explore, Invent With, Imagine With, And EDUCATE About. 8.

Categories of Nanomedicine(overhead template) 12 13. Applications - Bioanalysis High Throughput (HTP) screens, sensors & diagnostic platforms: Multiplexed assays in solution: dots, bars, beads Arrays by deposition: beads, particles, wires Nanopore transport (sequencing, ion channels) Microfluidics to nanofluidics NanoInk Detection and separation: molecular tags (nanoink)NanoSphereH. Criaghead, CornellNanoplex Quantum Dot Novel detection leads to enhanced sensitivity NanoSys Higher throughput is nice, but multiplexed format is key(overhead template)13 14. Applications - Medical Devices Medical imaging: Contrast agents Shielding agents Tissue-specific imageRetinal cortex enhancement Implantable sensors: Retinal processing BioPhan: MRIcompatible coatings Neural interconnects Stents with drug delivery and active monitoring Nanoscale Surgery: Tissue-directed light/heatablation Cell-specific gene therapy Atherosclerotic Coronary Disease(overhead template) 14 15. Applications - TherapeuticsDrugs & drug delivery platforms:Drugs with enhanced bioavailability & specificity Improve drugs with poor solubility Traverse membranes, possibly blood-brain barrier Delivery of nanostructured silicon for bone structure APPs AbraxaneDrug delivery systems Delivery via skin, lungs, GI tract Encapsulation for stealth-mode release Encapsulation for scavenging/removal Devices for long-term in vivo deliveryTissue-specific payload deposition High local doseNanoMed Lower toxicity & side effects Nanopore drug delivery(overhead template) 15 16.

Educational OpportunitiesA key challenge for nanotechnologydevelopment is the education and training ofa new generation of skilled workers in themultidisciplinary perspectives necessaryfor rapid progress of the new technologySource: Mihail C Roco, Senior Advisor for Nanotechnology at the National Science Foundation(overhead template) 30 31. Nanotech Job Projections It is estimated that about 2 million nanotechnologyworkers will be needed worldwide by 2015. an approximate distribution of nanotechnologyworkers needed in various areas by 2015 would be:0.8-0.9 million in the US, 0.5-0.6 million in Japan,0.3-0.4 million in Europe, about 0.2 million in theAsia-Pacific region excluding Japan and 0.1 millionin other regions. nanotechnology has the potential to create 5million additional related jobs overall by 2015 in theglobal market.Source: Mihail C Roco, Senior Advisor for Nanotechnology at the National Science Foundation(overhead template) 31 32.
