19th Annual Biomedical Lectures Series to Host Director of Nano/Bio Interface Center at University of Pennsylvania

Release Date: Wednesday, February 15, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Dr. Dawn Bonnell, trustee professor of materials science and director of the Nano/Bio Interface Center at the University of Pennsylvania will present the 19th Annual Biomedical lecture on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 4 p.m. in the East Parlor, St. Joseph Hall. 
As one of the country’s top leaders in nanotechnology, Dr. Bonnell was a key participant at the 2010 National Nanotechnology Innovation Summit in Washington, D.C. At the Nano/Bio Interface Center at the University of Pennsylvania, she generated new research programs that cross disciplinary boundaries linking engineering and life science. This two-way exchange advances the understanding of interactions at the interface of physical and biological systems. 
Bonnell’s research focuses on atomic processes on surfaces. Her research group is known for imaging atoms on oxide surfaces. Her group has recently developed a new paradigm for fabricating nanostructured devices, Ferroelectric Nanolithography, and discovered a new mechanism for harvesting light energy. 
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Dr. Lakshmi Atchison at latchiso@chc.edu or call 215.248.7159.
