I actually went to the Nanomedicine briefing for a somewhat shallower reason than the previous post would imply. I sometimes get tired of taxing my brain with new nanofacts, and admit that there is large portion of this field that I will never understand. Still, the sociology of nanoscientists fascinates me, probably because they are such a diverse group and are unaccustomed to being lumped together. When asked, most identify themselves as chemists, engineers, medical doctors, toxicologists, etc. Who among them might be called simply a "nanoscientist"?
