What will nanomedicine look like in 2023? Will tiny rockets steered by magnets and powered by zinc target and destroy cancer cells? Will nano-pills with cameras controlled by doctors make exploratory surgery obsolete? Pending patents, human trials, and technological innovations are converging to create a perfect storm of discovery, to be explored in this program.
The World Science Festival’s annual salon series offers in-depth conversations with leading scientists, extending the discussion of the Festival’s premiere public programs to graduate students, postdocs, faculty and well-informed members of the general public.
This program is part of “The Big, the Small, and the Complex,” a series exploring the latest developments in Astrophysics, Nanoscience, and Neuroscience—fields recognized by The Kavli Prize. Sponsored by The Kavli Foundation, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, and the Royal Norwegian Consulate General.
