What is Nanotechnology?
With nanotechnology we can observe atoms and molecules and move them around. New materials, improved medicine, high-speed computers, and enhanced protection of the environment are just some of the promising prospects of using nanotechnology.

Now, University of Copenhagen nanochemist Jørn Bolstad Christensen has been tasked, as part of an International team, with developing a unique approach to attacking the deadly arterial deposits.
