Nanotechnologies for Better Living

Nanotechnologies for Better Living

Imaginative MIT scientists are taking the microscopic properties of molecules to create larger-than-life consumer goods that will change the way we live.

A battery built by a virus might power electronic gadgets, or even transportation systems. Forget pills- drug release systems implanted in the human body, using advances in nanoengineering and biology, will keep us healthier than ever.

This exhibit explores the beginning of an exciting new field of applied science.


Professor Paula Hammond and students of the Hammond Lab, Chemistry Department; Professor of Biological Engineering and Material Science and Engineering Angela Belcher, Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
