Nanomaterials are materials controlled by manipulation of size and shape at the nanometer scale 

(atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scale) that produce structures, devices, and systems 

with at least one novel/superior characteristic or property. There is generally excitement when a 

superior property of materials on the nanoscale that can revolutionize the world are discovered, 

however undesirable properties (such as toxicity or inefficiency) can dim their prospects of real 

world applications. This seminar will focus on addressing nanomaterial challenges related to 

health care.  It will highlight innovative approaches to creating and understanding nanomaterials 

for healthcare (cardiovascular disease, diabetes, tuberculosis, and cancer).
