IMNI Distinguished Lecture in Nanoscience

Brown’s Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation (IMNI) will be hosting a year-long series of scientific lectures from leading Chinese academicians engaged at the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology.  The field of nanoscience deals with the systematic assembly of atoms and molecules into collective structures with new and superior properties and emergent behaviors.   Both China and the US are investing heavily in this area, because it is believed to hold the key to the development of a next generation of fast, strong, and smart components and devices for computing, energy, environment, and health care. 

The list of confirmed speakers for the series includes J.G. Hou, President of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), Wei Yang, President of Zhejiang University, Enge Wang, Provost of Peking University, and Xinhe Bao, President of Shenyang Branch of the Chinese Academy of Science.  Each visitor will participate in the newly established IMNI Distinguished Lectureship in Nanoscience through a technical presentation.
