IMM is a nonprofit foundation formed in 1991 to conduct and support research on molecular systems engineering and molecular manufacturing (molecular nanotechnology, or MNT). IMM also promotes guidelines for research and development practices that will minimize risk from accidental misuse or from abuse of molecular nanotechnology.
The International Association of Nanotechnology (IANT), is a non-profit organization with the goals to foster scientific research and business development in the areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for the benefits of society.
The Nanosystems Biology Cancer Center (NSBCC) is organized to take advantage of the state-of-the-art in chemistry, materials, and physics of nanotechnology science and engineering, the state-of-the-art in systems biology approach to health and disease, and the state-of-the-art in the science, technology, and clinical applications of cancer biology.
NRF has been established as the first non-profit organization specifically focused on supporting the acceleration of nanotechnology research and innovation. NRF is a catalyst that serves as the hub for the advancement of nanotechnologies which is funded by a diverse group of stakeholders from the private sector, private foundations, government agencies, and high net worth individuals with a common agenda. Its mission is to attract capital and talent from across the country to stimulate creativity and advance the adoption of nanotechnologies with sustainable industry practices for economic, environmental and social benefits.
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 National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) is one of the world's foremost centers for electron microscopy and microcharacterization.
Located adjacent to the University of California, Berkeley, NCEM was established in 1983 to maintain a forefront research center for electron-optical characterization of materials with state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise.
The Northern California Nanotechnology Initiative, NCnano, is an economic development initiative focused on developing the nanotechnology and the nano-bio-IT convergence technology economy of Northern California.
