Johns Hopkins University chemical engineer Dr. Denis Wirtz has developed a sort of molecular towing service.Wirtz has devised a way to hitch tiny iron-oxide beads to individual DNA molecules. Then, using a computer keyboard or joystick, he can alter magnetic fields around the molecules to tow the beads and their DNA wherever he wants -- in three dimensions, and all by remote control.Dyed so that they fluoresce with a blue glow, the threadlike DNA strands can be seen on a video screen, drifting and turning obediently in ghostly formation as they move through a dark sea of nonbeaded DNA."

Wirtz suggested another friend, George Smalley, could put the lyrics to music.Don't wait to say, "I love you."Don't wait to say, "I care."

The Johns Hopkins University is starting a graduate program aimed at training a new breed of scientist and engineer - the nanotechnologist. The school has won a $1 million grant to design a program and begin training doctoral students in nanomedicine, an emerging field that treats diseases on a molecular level. The discipline shows promise in fighting various cancers and genetic illnesses. The effort is a response to the growing need for doctors, chemists and engineers who can work in the physical sciences with nanoscale devices, said Denis Wirtz, the Hopkins professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering who will direct the program.

The Wildcats had watched their early 21-point lead evaporate, and Massachusetts was charging hard, trailing by two with 5 1/2 minutes left.That's when Lennie Wirtz, who was officiating basketball games before John Calipari was born, stepped in and stopped the Minutemen cold. He called a controversial technical against the Massachusetts coach, and Kentucky was able to breathe again.
