Event description

Description

How and why do we design and build artificial structures and even machines at the nanoscale using DNA, proteins, and other biological molecules?

In this talk, explore how nanoscale machines can target individual cancer cells and deliver drugs more effectively, as well as how nanoantibiotics can fight resistant bacteria, and how tissues and organs can be modified for drug discovery, and transplantation.

Sonia Contera explores how nanotechnology is revolutionising medicine in ways that will have profound effects on our health and longevity.

More profoundly, nanotech facilitates the study of biology within the framework of physics, potentially changing not only the future of engineering and AI, but also the way we think about life itself.

Discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm.
