Nanotechnology research and industry collaboration in (U)WA.Β Β 

A UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Public Lecture by Professor Jeffrey Gordon, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and Adjunct Professor, The University of Western Australia.Β 
What is nanotechnology, why is it important, and how are basic advances at UWA being translated to industrial-scale high-impact production?Β 

Nanotechnology has spawned fundamentally new materials at the service of society. But what exactly is nanotechnology, and why should we pay attention? Also, why have major bench-top discoveries not been translated to large-scale industrial production?Β Β 

This public talk will address these questions and will outline how UWA is playing a leading role in advancing research into real-world impact at WA's first nanotech company, Ablano Pty Ltd in Perth, for innovative uses in the aerospace sector, cancer therapy, the cosmetics industry, and beyond.Β 

Professor Jeffrey Gordon has forged major scientific advances in the fields of materials science, nanotechnology, solar energy conversion, advanced optical design, photovoltaics, biomedical optics, and algal biotechnology.Β Β 

He is a founding member of BGU's pioneering Institute for Desert Research, playing a pivotal role in stewarding it from a desert outpost to an internationally recognised centre of research and graduate education.Β Β 

One of his aims at UWA, in collaboration with Professor Hui Tong Chua, UWA Department of Chemical Engineering and Ablano Pty Ltd is creating scalable, affordable procedures for the mass-production and commercialisation of valued nanomaterials.Β
