MIT launches global medical nanotech (not molecular manufacturing) push

Leaders of 10 research universities from around the world will gather at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology today to launch an international collaboration to use nanotechnology tools for global health and medical research. The collaboration, called GEM4, or Global Enterprise for Micro-Mechanics and Molecular Medicine, represents an ambitious effort to apply global sourcing principles to research at the intersection of engineering and life sciences.

The conference was organized by Subra Suresh, head of MIT's department of materials science and engineering.

MIT's president, Susan Hockfield, said in an interview that the initiative could herald a new model for international research, with far-flung researchers sharing their expertise in person, online, and through teleconferencing.
