Quick Day 3 update

Will try to post something more detailed later, but a quick update about the highlight of Day 3 (Monday) at the conference, which was the Bioengineering talks in the afternoon. Some really cutting edge work presented by Charles Leiber and Bianxiao Cai on using nanomaterials that integrate into biological cells, both for measurement, as well as for interfacing. Very futuristic – the word cyborg was invoked, and Leiber concluded with how the partition between nano-electronic materials and biological tissue will gradually fade!
