What if we could cure cancer with a pill that tricks the immune system and prevents the disease from spreading? What if sensors could provide new data to help solve global concerns relating to energy, water and food? What if we could create entirely new generations of biomedical, electrical, information storage and mechanical devices that could transform entire industries and vastly improve our quality of life?
These questions and more will be answered by University of Chicago experts during “Future Science: Small Scale, Big Impact,” the next installment of the UChicago Discovery Series, a public speaker series that highlights the groundbreaking work of UChicago scientists, scholars and engineers.
The April 6 event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Performance Hall at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, and is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is requested to help gauge attendance for the event.
The event speakers are all members of the UChicago’s Institute for Molecular Engineering. They will give short talks, followed by questions from the audience, that will discuss how immuno-engineering might hold the key to curing cancer and other health threats; how global challenges in energy, water and agriculture can be tackled through new nanoscale-devices and sensors; and how cutting edge approaches to molecular engineering can lead to new generations of computing, electronics, biomedical and mechanical devices.
Fascinating right? Check out the full story here.
