Dr Lino Barañao, Minister of Science for the Republic of Argentina, visited the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) on 4 April 2008, accompanied by Professor Fernando Audebert, Dr Marina Galano and Carolina Pérez Colman.

Nanotechnology is a government priority for Argentina. Dr Barañao met Professor Gabriel Aeppli, Co-Director of the LCN, Professor Michael Horton and other colleagues to discuss the research of the LCN and tour the facility.

The LCN is a multidisciplinary research centre, purpose-built to enable work at the forefront of science and technology. The LCN brings together two of the world's leading institutions, UCL and Imperial College London, with strong capabilities in the underlying disciplines - engineering, physical sciences and biomedicine - which are bridged by nanotechnology. Its aim is to provide the nanoscience and nanotechnology needed to solve major problems in information processing, healthcare, energy and environment.
