Paul S. Weiss

UC Presidential Chair & Distinguished Professor


Paul S. Weiss is a nanoscientist and holds a UC Presidential Chair and is a distinguished professor of chemistry & biochemistry, bioengineering, and materials science & engineering at UCLA, where he was previously director of the California NanoSystems Institute. He studies the ultimate limits of miniaturization, developing and applying new tools and methods for atomic-resolution imaging and patterning of chemical functionality. He applies these advances in areas including neuroscience, microbiome studies, tissue engineering, and high-throughput gene editing. He was the founding editor-in-chief of ACS Nano. He has won awards in science, engineering, teaching, publishing, and communications. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, AAAS, ACS, AIMBE, APS, AVS, Canadian Academy of Engineering, IEEE, MRS, and an honorary fellow of the Chinese Chemical Society and Chemical Research Society of India.

Talk Description

Nanotechnology Approaches to Biology and Medicine

Biology functions at the nanoscale. Thus, there are special opportunities not only to make biological measurements using nanotechnology, but also to interact directly in order to influence biological outcomes. Nanoscience and nanotechnology developed from chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, medicine, toxicology, and a host of other fields. Along the way, we taught each other our problems, challenges, and approaches. The interdisciplinary communication skills that were developed and are now part of our training remain unique to the field. As a result, nanoscience contributes to a wide range of other fields, such as neuroscience, quantum information science, and the microbiome.
