Welcome to the 21st edition of NanoScientific.
As we look into the beginning of a new year, NanoScientific has a few surprises coming out. First, we will introduce NanoScientific TV, compelling interviews and videos of the leading-edge nano researchers, a sneak peek into nanotechnology of tomorrow. We will also introduce NanoScientific App, which will give you easier access to submit abstracts, read articles online and network with others using the new NS Community Forum.
We have published articles in this issue from four of our young presenters at NanoScientific Symposium for a Changing World, including Winner of “The Most Promising Future Application Award” at the Poster Exhibition, Estephany Santiago, with her article Magnetic Nanoscavangers: The New Trend To Improve Water Quality and a short Q&A from her below. Congratulations for all of our winners at NSCW, Best Poster – Lynn Krushinski; Committee Choice – Cody Leasor; Most Promising Future Application – Estephany Santiago;Committee Choice – Hang Ran; Microscopy Award – Myunghoon Choi; Best Presentation – Louis Rogowski; Most Promising Future Application – Piran Kidambi and to all the presenters who gave inspiring talks about future research that will improve our world. In this issue, you will find four of these presenters’ articles with research leading to new approaches in understanding nanoscience which were presented at the Virtual NanoScientific Symposium. Next year, in 2021, we are planning many more virtual NanoScientific Symposiums with an in person option, if possible. Stay tuned for dates of these events.
I am also proud to announce a new member to the NanoScientific Board, Marine Le Bourer, CEO of NanoTechnology World Association. Marine has been a huge collaborator with NanoScientific for several years and we are glad to have her as an official member of the board.
We pledge to continue to bring you exciting articles and symposiums that highlight the best of the most creative scientific minds of our time, who collectively are elevating nanotechnology to great new heights. We applaud the intensity and dedication that nano researchers put into the effort to unravel the mysteries of science one atom at a time. It is our honor to report on their achievements.
Stay safe during the New Year and may you have a very prosperous and rewarding year to come.
