Leonid Melamed is leading a Rosnanotech delegation at a three-day summit on nano renewable energy that opened in Denver, Colorado last Sunday.
"We could possibly have an opportunity to test the technology in December," Melamed said.
Russians have so far been able to have their blood plasma cleaned during an almost two-hour session of plasmapheresis priced at up to 5,000 rubles ($215) at clinics. Patients can undergo treatment for metabolic disorder and remove toxins from their blood.
Melamed said that fitness centers and beauty parlors could soon use nanotechnology to offer plasmopheresis to their customers.
Melamed also invited Clayton Teague, who heads the U.S. National Nanotechnology Coordination Office, to attend an international nanotechnology forum to be held in Moscow on December 3-5, 2008.
On the first day of the summit Michael Bruce, senior advisor for finance at the US Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, described nanotechnology as an important sector for national security, finance and environmental protection.
Alexander Losyukov, Rosnanotech deputy general director for international contacts, said earlier "one of our tasks is to introduce the corporation to our American partners and to outline directions for specific cooperation and prospects for the implementation of joint projects."

Russia’s foreign policy in the next decade depends entirely on what happens at home.
