Science on Tap GREENVILLE - Tim Hanks, Furman Univ., Building Soft Nanomachines from Polydiacetylene Liposomes

Science on Tap GREENVILLE - Tim Hanks, Furman Univ., Building Soft Nanomachines from Polydiacetylene Liposomes

WHAT
A forum where people come to learn about and discuss recent discoveries in science and technology while having fun!  An expert will give an informal talk for 20 - 30 minutes, followed by Q & A and discussion. Attendees can get up, eat or refresh their beverages at any time. Science on tap is FREE and open to all ages!  

This month: Building Soft Nanomachines from Polydiacetylene Liposomes
Tim Hanks, Chemistry Department, Furman University (arranged by EPSCoR-- Cyndy Buckhaults)

The term “nanotechnology” means different things to different people. Here we will explore the concept of a “machine” on the nanoscale and look at our recent work in designing such devices and putting them to work on real world problems.

WHEN 
Science on Tap - Greenville meets the last Tuesday of each month, 6:30 - 7:45pm.  Check the website for tonight's speaker/topic, clemson.edu/centers-institutes/culsoc/science-on-tap/, and join us!
