Nanotechnology and Learning to Talk to Bacteria: Reginald C. Farrow, Ph.D. at TEDxNJIT














The most well-known advances in nanotechnology have led to dramatically smaller devices that provide us very fast, compact and "smart" electronics including computers, cellphones, and games. In the process we have transformed the way that we communicate with each other. Along with these advances, multidisciplinary teams of scientists and engineers are applying nanotechnology to solve some of the most basic questions in biology and are even developing completely new biologically inspired devices. I will describe how its not science fiction any more to consider having a conversation with the smallest of living things including the cells that are constantly trying to infect our bodies.
