A Knight in London - The Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN) played host, with its Chief Executive Officer, Ottilia Saxl, in the chair, to a guest lecture given by Fraser on "Chemistry and Molecular Nanotechnology for Tomorrow's World" at the Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London on the evening of Thursday 13 September 2007. At the dinner – for 40 or so – which followed the lecture, after-dinner speeches were made by David Brickwood (Postgraduate Student at the University of Sheffield from 1970 to 1973), Larry Cullen (Postgraduate Student at the University of Sheffield from 1985 to 1989) and Stuart Cantrill (associated with the group for a decade, from 1995 to 2005, as firstly an Undergraduate Student Researcher and then as a (Post) Graduate Student at both the University of Birmingham and UCLA before ending up as a Research Associate at UCLA). David is with the pharmaceutical company, Johnson & Johnson, Larry is practicing patent law in South Wales, and Stuart is a Deputy Editor with Nature Nanotechnology in London. Thanks to all three for their recollections over a 35-year span.
