History -

As President of the Foresight Institute, she organizes the Foresight Conferences on molecular nanotechnology. She is the founding editor of Foresight Update. She also co-authored "Unbounding the Future: The Nanotechnology Revolution."
The first angiogenesis inhibitor was discovered by Folkman. He hypothesized that tumor growth is dependant upon angiogenesis.
They invented the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM). They were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1986.
They invented the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM). They were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1986.
He created nickel rotors that are 700 nanometers long.
He joined Zyvex in March 2000. Freitas authored "Nanomedicine," the first book-length technical discussion of the potential and medical applications of molecular nanotechnology and medical nanorobotics.
