Alcor is pleased to announce continuing support for development of theoretical nanomedical protocols and devices. For the third year, Robert Freitas, Jr. will receive a grant to continue his pioneering work in nanotechnology. Freitas has acknowledged Alcor’s support in several peer-reviewed, published papers. He also has one additional peer-reviewed paper currently in press at J. Phys.Chem. A (slated for August 2007 publication) and four other peer-reviewed papers in various stages of completion — all Alcor-supported — that should be published sometime during 2007-2008.
