Nobel Laureate, Fraser Stoddart on Nanobots and the Rise of Molecular Machines

On July 24th, 2017, Nobel Laureate, Sir Fraser Stoddart of Northwestern University, will give a public colloquium at Portland State University. The event, which begins at 3:00 p.m., is free and open to all and will be held in PSU’s Science Building One, room 107 (1025 SE Mill St. Portland, OR 97201). Tickets are limited and available here. Dr. Stoddart shared the noble prize with Jean-Pierre Sauvage of the University of Strasbourg, France and Bernard L. Feringa from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands for the design and synthesis of small molecular machines. That work was the culmination of years of design and study, and has laid the groundwork for the development of new materials, sensors, and energy storage devices. Dr. Stoddart’s talk is titled “Materials Beyond Cyclodextrins: Emergence Opens up a Whole New World of Wonders.”

This special public event is a part of the American Chemical Society’s Graduate Research Symposium, which is being held at Portland State University Thursday, July 20th through Sunday, July 23, 2017. The American Chemical Society Local Portland Section, the Sigma XI Society, and the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute sponsor the event.

Tickets are available here.
