Leading scientists join BTG network to explore potential of nanotechnology

BTG : 09 October, 2006  (Company News)
BTG, the global technology commercialisation company, today launched the BTG Nanotechnology Network, a think-tank of leading international scientists working in the fields of nanotechnology.
BTG, the global technology commercialisation company, today launched the BTG Nanotechnology Network, a think-tank of leading international scientists working in the fields of nanotechnology.

Biologists, chemists and physicists from the Universities of Leeds, Oxford, Coventry, Portsmouth, Leicester, Edinburgh and Delft in the Netherlands, the Marie Curie Research Institute and the National Physics Laboratory are meeting today to share their research and findings on developments in nanotechnology within their field of expertise.

Topics to be addressed cover the interface between nanobiology and electronics and include papers on topics such as: applications in nanotechnology, chemistry and medicine; detection of single molecules using fluorescence; and protein DNA interactions at a single molecular level.

Ian Harvey, BTGs Chief Executive Officer said: 'Nanotechnology has the potential to shape the future of almost every scientific discipline. These disciplines usually work in isolation, so bringing together these leaders in their fields allows them to join forces to push the boundaries of nanotechnology. The possibilities are endless and very exciting.'

Dr. Keith Firman, Principal Lecturer in Molecular Biology, University of Portsmouth said: 'Nanotechnology is a major development in the advance of science. As with all emerging fields, the potential for commercially viable technologies is huge, whether its a new way of delivering medicines in the body or a way of improving communications. By backing this network, BTG can help us find, develop and commercialise exciting technologies in this arena.'

Nanotechnology technology based on the visualisation and manipulation of individual molecules - is currently being developed in the disciplines of biology, molecular science, chemistry, bio-medics and physics.
