The Girvan Institute of Technology is a non-profit, public benefit corporation chartered to facilitate the transfer, development and commercialization of technologies and to foster the growth of early-stage high-tech companies.
The GoodNanoGuide is a collaboration platform designed to enhance the ability of experts to exchange ideas on how best to handle nanomaterials in an occupational setting. It is meant to be an interactive forum that fills the need for up-to-date information about current good workplace practices, highlighting new practices as they develop.
The Graphene Stakeholders Association (GSA) was founded as a non-profit organization to help promote the responsible development of graphene-based products. The GSA was created to foster graphene-based education, technical collaboration, scientific exchange, and value and job creation through successful commercialization. It is envisioned that GSA members will be part of a premier network that joins all major graphene stakeholders – researchers, government agencies, producer and user companies.
The participants in the Consortium of Maine Biological Nanotechnology Effort Consortium (MBNE) cuts across the fields of marine science, bioengineering, astrobiology, medicine and ecucation. This site is an introduction to biological nanotechnology.
The Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology at the Harvard School of Public Health draws on decades of experience with environmental pollutants and the health effects of particles to address the unique environmental health and safety (EHS) concerns raised by engineered nanomaterials (ENM) and nanotechnology applications.
The Westervelt Group has three areas of focus: 1) Imaging the coherent flow of electrons inside semiconductor nanostructures at low temperatures using scanning probe microscopy; 2) Studies of tunnel-coupled quantum dots and the fabrication of artificial molecules composed of few-electron quantum dots to implement qubits for quantum information processing; 3) Development of micro-electromagnets to trap, move, and assemble particles.
The Zhuang research lab works on the forefront of single-molecule biology and bioimaging, developing and applying advanced optical imaging techniques to study the behavior of individual biological molecules and complexes in vitro and in live cells.
The main focus of the new HSPH-NIEHS Center is to bring together scientists from across disciplines- material science, chemistry, exposure assessment, risk assessment, nanotoxicology and nanobiology- to assess the potential environmental Health and safety (EHS) implications of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs).
The HNF is an established centralized user facility containing over $10M of micro- and nano fabrication and characterization equipment, accessible by external and internal academic, government and industrial users.
