Summer Research Program 2001 in Nanobiotechnology

           The Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC), with faculty located at the Wadsworth Center - New
          York State Department of Health, Cornell University, Princeton University and Oregon Health
          Sciences University, extends an invitation to undergraduates to participate in our Summer Research
          Program. Undergraduates will have an opportunity to be exposed to the field of nanobiotechnology,
          and to join a National Science Foundation-supported effort which seeks to develop new tools and
          processes that link engineering and biology.

          The 25 faculty in the NBTC are biologists, engineers, chemists, and materials scientists who are
          pursuing a number of different areas of research that push the frontiers of fabrication in pursuit of
          tools needed to address biological problems. Research areas include:

               Fabricating micro-scale motors powered by biological fuels.
               Creating probes which can measure the biochemical contents of a single cell.
               Growing neurons on microfabricated surfaces to develop networks.
               Developing biosensors that can rapidly measure bacterial pathogens in foods and the
