The future is filled with possibilities, and breakthrough sciences such as nanotechnology are moving us ever closer to the next scientific revolution.
Purdue University is proud to facilitate such progress through the inaugural Discovery Lecture Series seminar, "Transforming Society through Emerging Technologies: The National Nanotechnology Initiative at Five Years."
Sponsored by Purdue's Discovery Park, the Discovery Lecture Series is designed to serve as a forum where the nation's leading experts can share their insights with researchers and the general public, helping to promote understanding of the profound implications of constantly evolving research and technology.
I would like to extend a special thanks to each of our panelists for their willingness to share insights about the vast potential of nanotechnology. I would also like to recognize the generosity and vision of the Lilly Endowment, which has committed more than $50 million to Discovery Park endeavors, including the Discovery Lecture Series.
We hope this seminar will both enlighten and inspire all who attend.
