The Nanobioengineering Research Laboratory, a collaboration between the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), is a multidisciplinary centre belonging to the Catalan Bioengineering Institute (IBEC) in which joint research on the applications of nanotecnology to biology and biomedicine is carried out.
A cooperative effort of 8 institutions, the nanomedicine development center focuses on a model nucleoprotein machine that carries out non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) of DNA double strand breaks. This machine has a simple structure and significant clinical relevance.
The goal of the Nanomotor Drug Delivery Center is to construct a synthetic modified motor with artificial components for use in a variety of nanodevices and nanomedical applications. The center is to create liposomes and nano-structured arrays with embedded and active modified phi29 DNA-packaging motors for both passive and active transport of DNA and drugs.
A nonprofit scientific research and education foundation chartered to conceive, establish, and conduct cutting-edge technology, research, and development in the areas of aerospace, education, energy, life sciences, shipping and transportation.
JILA is an institute for interdisciplinary research and graduate education in the physical sciences, operated jointly by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder, and involving NIST Quantum Physics Division 848 researchers. These NIST scientists participate in a variety of nanotechnology activities, several of which are summarized here
The research work focuses on experimental research and development in nano and bio technologies as well as on a strong complementary modeling and simulation effort that includes computational nanotechnology, computational nanoelectronics, computational optoelectronics, and computational modeling of processes encountered in nanofabrication.
The NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC) for Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies (NASCENT) will develop high throughput, high yield and versatile nanomanufacturing systems to take nano-science discoveries from the lab to the marketplace. The Center is led by The University of Texas at Austin and includes two partner institutions - University of California at Berkeley and University of New Mexico. Also included are Seoul National University in South Korea and Indian Institute of Science.
Research activities of the laboratory are mainly focused on development of new methods and tools for scanning probe microscopy (SPM) and research of different types of samples (biological objects, coatings, films, carbon nanotubes, single molecules, micro- and optoelectronic components etc.) using SPM techniques.
The center is based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Partner institutions include Yale University, University of Southern California, University of Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology, Sandia National Laboratories, Argonne National Laboratory, Oxford University, Wabash College, University of California, Davis, nanoHUB at Purdue University, and the University of New Mexico.
The research focus of the Center is on design, modelling and synthesis of nanomaterials with specific properties and various possible applications. Initial focus is on carbon nanotubes, silicon nanoparticles and nanolayer deposition techniques.
The NEST-INFM initiative targets the creation of a world-class research centre where interdisciplinary teams of computational, experimental, and theoretical physicists together with molecular biologists and chemists can investigate key issues of nanoscale physics and exploit the new acquired knowledge to develop innovative nanobiotechnological tools, and nanoelectronic and photonic devices and architectures.
The group focuses on the design and fabrication of functional structures, characterization of properties, and development for industrial and energy applications of low-dimensional nanomaterials including graphene, carbon nanotubes, boride, carbide, and oxide nanowires.
The Quantum Dot Research Center is promoting research on these semiconductor nano structures and aiming at further development of basic nano technologies by advancing and fusing nano fabrication technologies which NIMS has been cultivating.
The advanced characterization and measurement technologies responding to the material needs are indispensable for the innovation. The group is aiming at is state-of-the-art analytical technologies to clarify the comprehensive characteristics of materials.
