2021 IIN Symposium

Celebrating 20 Years of Big Thinking at the Nanoscale

Since 2001, the IIN Symposium has been one of the world’s premier events for students, researchers, and others interested in the latest advances in nanotechnology.

With the celebration of the IIN’s 20th anniversary, the 2021 IIN Symposium will, for the first time, exclusively feature luminaries from Northwestern delivering TED-style talks on their research and its impact across areas of importance to everyone. The winners of the 2021 Kabiller Prize in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine and Kabiller Young Investigator Award will also present their work.

Check out the lineup below — and then save the date for an incredible event! Registration opens in September.
