Future Science: Small Scale, Big Impact
The UChicago Discovery Series program, “Future Science: Small Scale, Big Impact,” will host experts from the Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME) Wednesday, April 6, 2016, from 6-8 p.m. at the Performance Hall Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago, 915 E. 60th St., Chicago. IME scientists and engineers will present a series of short talks about their groundbreaking work tackling problems in medicine, energy, electronics, communications and more.
Searching for solutions at molecular levels, IME researchers, in partnership with scientists at Argonne, are tackling some of the world’s most intractable problems in energy, the environment and human health.
Speakers will address the following questions:
- What future technologies will quantum science make possible?
- Does immunotherapy hold the key to curing cancer?
- What new devices and technologies will self-assembling materials make possible and how might they boost manufacturing?
- How will the explosion in data analytics and promising new nanotechnologies help improve quality of life and access to food, clean water and energy?
An audience Q&A will follow.
