Lots of Government Money For Nanotech

As reported at MSNBC, the US government will be spending a much larger amount of money on basic nanotechnology research over the next few years. This is of interest to us life extensionists because so many of the fundamental medical technologies we are waiting for are based on a greater understanding of nanotechnology. As the field of nanotechnology advances, so does most modern biotechnology as well. Many recent breakthroughs in anti-aging and aging research have resulted from better understanding and better tools for working with the very small: genes, proteins and cellular mechanisms built out of a few molecules.
