The Advanced Materials Research Center (AMRC) is a industry-driven virtual R&D center focused on the commercialization of advanced technologies. The center is a collaboration between the State of Texas, SEMATECH, and the state's research universities.
The Alliance for NanoHealth (ANH) was the first multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional collaborative research endeavor aimed solely at using nanotechnology to bridge the gaps between medicine, biology, materials science, computer technology and public policy. The ANH comprises seven world-class research institutions, scientists and clinicians located within the world's largest collection of healthcare facilities.
The Nanoelectronics Workforce Development Initiative, under the leadership of SEMATECH, ATDF, and Austin Community College, is leading the way toward developing a nanoelectronics workforce in Central Texas.
The Center has been established to define the basic chemical and physical principles used by molecular chaperones in the folding of proteins through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches. The goal is to engineer protein machines that can assist in the folding of any protein of interest, as well as develop strategies to alleviative or prevent protein misfolding associated with a number of human diseases.
The Consortium for Nanomaterials for Aerospace Commerce and Technology (CONTACT) is a critical part of the Smalley Institute for Nanotechnology at Rice University. The CONTACT Program provides the basis for cooperative nanotechnology research in Texas and in the Air Force Research Laboratory to provide breakthrough technological solutions. It is strengthened by cross cutting intellectual collaborations and the availability of state of the art equipment and focuses on technology transfer to aerospace, commercial, and defense sectors.
The creation of a sustainable nanotechnology industry requires meaningful and organized relationships among diverse stakeholders. ICON is aimed at providing such interactions for a broad set of members. Managed by Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology, ICON activities ensure effective nanotechnology stewardship through risk assessment, research and communication.
The JSC Carbon Nanotube Project is focused on developing bulk nanotube production, purification and application of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes. The goal of our project is to develop nanotube applications for use in human space exploration.
In past decades, nanostructured materials have shown promise of revolutionizing a number of areas, including theranostic, electronic, and photonic materials. Applications of these fields include yet a wider range of specialities, which can be incorporated into sensor material design. This shall be the focus of the MEAN Lab; fundamental material properties and applications of nanomaterials to sensor design. The MEAN Lab shall span a spectrum of expertise (e.g. - nanomaterials, bionanotechnology, interfacial science, electrochemistry), all of which fall under the umbrella of sensor design.
The NanoComputer Dream Team is a nonprofit, International Educational Organization, utilizing the World Wide Web, with the objective of fostering a collaborative environment for the creative development of Nanotechnology.
NanoMaterials Design & Commercialization Center at Alliance is a consortium of leading Aerospace, Defense and Advanced Manufacturing (ADAM) companies, research universities, community colleges and the State of Texas. Their mission is to identify and address technical challenges in materials design, insertion and fabrication commonly faced by ADAM sector firms.
