Diamond as a gemstone? What a waste!

Using Diamond Nanotechnology to repair our bodies.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend apparently, but are they far more valuable in biotechnology? Diamond is not only a sparkler it has some extraordinary physical properties, which are used widely in engineering and technology. It’s extremely hard, has high thermal conductivity and its electrical properties make it very useful in high performance electronic devices. One lesser known quality is its bio-compatiblity, making it perfect for devices to be used within the body.

Professor Richard Jackman from the London Centre for Nanotechnology will tell us why wearing diamonds is only the beginning of our uses for these versatile gemstones.
