An integrative research and education enterprise at Clemson University that is oriented toward service, is actively managed and directed by the constituency it serves, and is focused on providing leadership and excellence to the scientific and technological area of bioelectronics, biosensors and biochips. Research areas include nanobiosensors.
The mission of the Clemson Nanomaterials Center (CNC) is to conduct cutting-edge multidisciplinary research and discover new nanoscale phenomena that can broaden the frontiers of nanoscience and strongly impact industrial technologies. CNC aims to spread and bring forth Local Education and Awareness of Research in Nanomaterials (LEARN) with a unique approach towards graduate and undergraduate research education.
The group's overall research objective focuses on the development of hierarchically structured nanomaterials to study cell-cell interactions and the cooperative response of cells to extracellular matrixes.
