and nanoscale fabrication technologies offer fundamentally new
ways to probe, understand, and ultimately control complex
biological systems. Key to the success of an approach is the
ability to harness knowledge and expertise from physics, device
engineering, chemistry, and molecular biology.
university offers a unique environment to develop ideas requiring
long-term commitments and multidisciplinary collaborations while
industry provides the university with an invaluable perspective
to emerging applications.
MIT Media Laboratory has proposed a special interest group
that brings together industry and academia to explore research
projects at the interface of silicon technologies and biology.
In the context of the Media Lab's extraordinary research
environment, Silicon Biology will benefit from interaction
with other research programs addressing the interface between
human and technology, at multiple levels, from the cellular
to the community.
On November 13-14, 2000 there
