Whitesides Research

Media Highlights

George M. Whitesides, Ph.D, Harvard Univ., will receive the 2009 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry for revolutionizing nanotechnology and, specifically, for his pioneering chemical research in the field of molecular self-assembly. George Whitesides created a whole new field of study and technology when he used the fundamental laws of chemistry to let molecules essentially build themselves into structures smaller than anyone had been able to achieve. His ability to combine knowledge from biology, chemistry, and other disciplines has resulted in new, innovative medical technology and has spurred other scientists to think as broadly as himself.
