From building batteries to combating cancer: How Angela Belcher puts viruses to work
March 12, 2018
By gaining fine control over the nanostructure of various materials, Angela Belcher is trying to solve problems in medicine, energy, and the environment. These virus-based production processes run in water at low temperatures and low pressures, so they’re naturally more environmentally friendly than some older industrial processes, she says. Belcher will talk about some of this work during The Fred Kavli Innovations in Chemistry Lecture at the ACS national meeting in New Orleans this month.
