Chemistry professor receives Medal of Science for nanotech research

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (September 2, 2008)

ATLANTA: Tech prof wins prestigious prize


A Georgia Tech chemistry professor is getting the nation's highest science honor for his work in nanotechnology. Mostafa El-Sayed will receive the National Medal of Science during a ceremony at the White House on Sept. 29. El-Sayed is being honored for his research on the electronic and optical properties of nano-materials.

He is working with his son Ivan, a San Francisco doctor, to develop special nanorods that bind to cancer cells and make them easier to detect so lasers can destroy them without harming healthy cells. University System of Georgia officials said El-Sayed is only the second Georgian to receive the honor.
