A research group at Northeastern University concerned with the development of nano-motors and bio-nano machines for space applications.
The Biologically Inspired Materials Institute (BIMat) was established by NASA under the University Research, Engineering and Technology Institute (URETI) program. The principal goal for BIMat researchers is to develop bio-nanotechnology materials and structures for aerospace vehicles.
The mission of the group is to provide a rewarding and nourishing atmosphere of hands-on cutting edge research for students to develop and grow professionally and technically and use as an opportunity to springboard to a professional career that will benefit them and society.
The department has a strong record of research, with faculty involved in both experimental and theoretical areas. Some areas of current interest are: novel electronic materials; carbon nanotubes and nanotube arrays; theory of marginal Fermi liquids; optical and transport properties of low- dimensional condensed matter systems; novel superconductors.
The Center serves as a hub for nanoscience researchers from the Charles River and Medical Campuses and build activities that develop interdisciplinary research and training.
The central theme of the group's research is the exploration of quantum mechanical effects in engineered nanoscale structures and devices with a goal to study fundamental physical phenomena.
Research focuses on mechanical and electronic systems at the nanometer length scale. The group has state-of-the-art facilities where nanodevices can be fabricated and characterized.
Research in Optical Characterization and Nanophotonics (OCN) laboratory focuses on developing and applying advanced optical characterization techniques to the study of solid-state and biological phenomena at the nanoscale.
Highly interdisciplinary and translational, the group's research is focused on multifunctional, nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems. They seek to improve nanoparticle synthesis and formulation and its therapeutic efficacy. Additionally, they develop robust engineering processes to accelerate translation of nanoparticle-based drugs into the drug development pipeline. At the same time, they emphasize a fundamental understanding of the interface between nanomaterials and biological systems.
The group's focus is focus on nanoscale science, with an emphasis on carbon nanotubes and their respective uses.
The lab of Prof. Kenneth Breuer is active in research covering a wide variety of topics, including: Micron and nanometer scale fluid mechanics; Animal motion, in particular, bat flight and bacterial motility; Turbulent shear flows and shear flow control; Diagnostic methods for fluid mechanics.
The Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation (IMNI) was founded at Brown University in 2007 as an umbrella organization to support centers and collaborative research teams in targeted areas of the molecular and nanosciences. IMNI is a polydisciplinary venture with 55 faculty participants representing nine departments across campus. IMNI serves as a focal point for interaction with industry, government, and our affiliated hospitals.
Among other areas research into micro- and nanofabrication and nanoscience.
The Laboratory for Innovation in Nanostructured Carbon focuses on the synthesis, characterization, patterning, and technological uses of carbon nanomaterials.
Research and education carried out in this laboratory are associated with the experimental, computational and conceptual study of nanomechnics and micromechanics of materials
The research group of Prof. Shouheng Sun is interested in nanoscale materials synthesis, self-assembly and applications in biomagnetics, catalysis, information storage and magnetic nanocomposites
Prof. Webster directs the Nanomedicine Laboratory which designs, synthesizes, and evaluates nanomaterials for various implant applications. Nanomaterials are central to the field of nanotechnology and are materials with one dimension less than 100 nm. Tissues investigated include bone, bladder, vascular, cartilage, dental, and the nervous system.
Nanofabrication manufacturing technology relates to the creation of microscopic structures. This technology is the basis of such diverse areas as computer chip manufacturing, flat panel displays and large scale solar power arrays used in space exploration, biological implants, medicine and pharmaceuticals. Rapid growth in these industries has created a strong demand for technicians with training in the intricacies of nanofabrication techniques and clean room procedures. Students enrolling in either program will spend three semesters on BCCC campus and the final capstone semester on Penn State campus.

The Atwater research group at Caltech is engaged in interdisciplinary materials and device research, spanning photonics and electronics and with applications in Si-based photonics, plasmonics, renewable energy and mechanically active thin film devices.
Research covers nanobiotechnology, nanophotonics and large-scale integration of nanosystems.
The objectives of the MSC are to develop methods required for first principles multiscale multi-paradigm based predictions of the structures and properties of proteins, DNA, polymers, ceramics, metal alloys, semiconductors, organometallics and to apply these methods to design new materials for pharma, catalysis, microelectronics, nanotechnology, and superconductors.
In the Molecular Programming Project (MPP) at the California Institute of Technology and the University of Washington, scientists will develop new computer science principles for programming information-bearing molecules like DNA and RNA to create artificial biomolecular programs of similar complexity.
The group is primarily interested in the design, fabrication and characterization nano-scale photonic and fluidic devices and systems.
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.
