Staff Reporter

Predicts radical changes in the field of medicine, especially surgeries

ELURU: Ch. Mohan Rao, deputy director of Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad, has said that information technology is bound to give way to nanotechnology, a science that deals with atoms and molecules, in the next five years.

Speaking on `Trends in Science' at a State conference of Jana Vignana Vedika here on Sunday, he said information technology and biotechnology are the fundamental drivers of change in the 21st century.

Replacing IT

"Nanotechnology is poised to replace the present silicon age (IT) which will become outdated by 2010," he observed. The nanotechnology, aimed at manipulating and researching in individual atoms and molecules to create materials, devices and systems, would bring out a radical change in the human life, Mr. Rao said. The technology would make heart surgeries easier by creating `nano robots' and sending them inside for clearing clots and cleaning heart valves , he said.
