The science of the small

How nanotechnology is advancing healthcare

Nanotechnology is the science of the small. By small, we are talking about one-millionth of one millimetre. It is at this scale that much of nature operates. Plants and insects repel water, animals camouflage, copper kills bugs. Recent developments in technology have allowed us to work at the nanoscale. By designing and building at this scale we see materials that have remarkable properties. In this discussion, find out about the materials and devices we are working on which are allowing us to make antimicrobial and antiviral surfaces as well as sensors that will detect pathogens with incredible sensitivity.
