March 3, 2014 -- The Santa Monica Public Library this month will celebrate the contribution of women scientists in the new field of nanotechnology with a panel discussion consisting of the nation's foremost authorities on the subject.
The Santa Monica Library will host “Women in Nanotechnology” on Saturday, March 15, at 1 p.m. in the MLK Jr. Auditorium at the Main Library, located at 601 Santa Monica Boulevard as part of Women’s History Month.
The event will feature three women PhDs from the Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC-CEIN) at the University of California Los Angeles.
“Panelists Elise Fairbairn, Hilary Godwin, and Ivy Ji will discuss nanoscience and the environment, as well as why interdisciplinary research at UC-CEIN is important for society,” said Nancy Bender, Public Services Librarian.
“Nanoscale devices are currently being used for enhanced sensing, treating and remediating environmental contaminants. Someday we may be able to prevent pollution with the help of nanotechnology,” according to a University of Wisconsin-Madison study.
