2004 Maria Strømme became Uppsala University’s first professor of nanotechnology.
She is nominated in the category Speaker of the Year - Woman 2017.
After a decade of acclaim, with successes like 30 patents, more than 250 scientific articles, company start-ups and board membership in a range of national and international research councils and companies, the question is which of Strømme’s career dreams remain.
Maria will provide examples that show where we stand in nanotechnology development today and how the enormous potential of nanotechnology allows changing both our business and the prospects for our industry.
She gives additional views of how to treat cancer and to help paralytics to start walking by using nanotechnology. Also showing how to solve future needs of energy and where we currently stand from a historical perspective.
"We are right now at the beginning of a technology revolution that will change the way we live totally, and give us the tools to effectively cure cancer, make paralyzed people walk again, and let us find out what risks we have to get certain diseases in the future."
