WASHINGTON (NCER) - Mike Sailor, a STAR nanotechnology grantee from the University of California, San Diego, has developed minute grains of silicon that spontaneously assemble, orient and sense their local environment, a first step toward the development of robots the size of sand grains that could be used in medicine, bioterrorism surveillance and pollution monitoring. Sailor's nanotechnology research has been highlighted in a video news release produced by ScienCentral for the ABC Affiliate News Service for broadcast during local newscasts. ScienCentral also posted a Web article entitled "Tiny Toxin Tracker" that outlines his research.
