** The Foresight Institute is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2012
Distinguished Student Award is David Walker, a Ph.D. student at Northwestern
University in Evanston, Illinois.

David has already made significant contributions to the science of
nanotechnology, by using electrostatic interactions to precisely manipulate
nanoparticles. His work has been featured in leading nanoscience and chemistry
journals such as Nano Letters, Angewandte Chemie, and Nature Nanotechnology,
and has also been covered in popular media such as BBC News, Forbes, and
Popular Science. David is currently working on the use of electrostatic
confinement at the nanoscale to program the chemical properties of organic
molecules for use in self-assembly and catalytic relays.

The Foresight Distinguished Student Award was established in 1997, and is given
to a college student or graduate student whose work is notable in the field of
nanotechnology. The award includes a $1,000 prize, and an expenses-paid trip to
the 2013 Foresight Technical Conference: Illuminating Atomic Precision, to be
held January 11-13 in Palo Alto, CA. Information and registration for the
conference may be found at http://www.foresight.org/conference/

Foresight Institute is a leading think tank and public interest organization
focused on transformative future technologies. Founded in 1986, its mission is
to discover and promote the benefits, and help avoid the dangers, of
nanotechnology, AI, biotech, and similar life-changing developments.

Foresight is devoted to stimulating the development of atomically precise
nanotechnology that will truly transform our future, from medicine to the
environment to space settlement. We bring that vision and goal to new
audiences, including inspiring young researchers. More information about the
Foresight Institute, the technical conference, and the Distinguished Student
Award, may be found at http://www.foresight.org (http://www.foresight.org/), or
