Dartmouth has been designated as a Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE). The CCNE places Dartmouth among top centers in cancer nanotechnology research nationwide. CCNEs are tasked with integrating nanotechnology into basic and applied cancer research in order to provide new solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, in conjunction with Dartmouth College and Thayer School of Engineering, has a community of scientists, clinicians, and engineers, focused on the enormous potential of nanotechnology for improving cancer diagnostics and therapy. The group pulls together these diverse communities for educational and research purposes.
Since its inception in 1987, the Institute has been a bright source of creativity and innovation at the edge of microelectronic science. DIMES integrates nanoscale and high-speed device physics, material science and process technology, circuit design, and embedded system design methodology in one institute.
The department focuses on the functioning of single cells in all their complexity down to the molecular level. Understanding the mechanisms operating inside a cell is very useful for practical applications in, for example, improved health care, molecularly targeted medicine, and development of new energy sources. The department of Bionanoscience is part of the university's successful Kavli Institute of Nanoscience.
As of September 2010 the MSc in Nanoscience will no longer be offered in cooperation with Leiden University. At TU Delft Nanoscience will be offered as a track within the Applied Physics MSc programme.
Research in the Diederich group at ETH Zurich is structured around four central themes: Molecular recognition in chemistry and biology; Modern medicinal chemistry: molecular recognition studies with biological receptors and X-ray structure-based design of nonpeptidic enzyme inhibitors; Supramolecular nanosystems and nano-patterned surfaces; Advanced materials based on carbon-rich acetylenic molecular architecture.
The BioNanoTechnology research at the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science, and Health Systems at Drexel University (Drexel BIOMED) is focused on bioinformatics, biosensing, bioimaging, tissue engineering, drug delivery, and neuroengineering, which are the main research thrusts of the school.
This interdisciplinary materials science and engineering track provides a strong foundation for nanoscience and nanotechnology and is designed to prepare MSE majors for future interdisciplinary careers, for graduate research programs in materials science, nanotechnology, bioengineering and other disciplines.
The Spanier Group at the MesoMaterials Lab at Drexel uses variable temperature scanning probe microscopy to probe selected physical, electronic, mechanical, magnetic and optical properties of nanostructures.
Research in the Nanomaterials Group is focused on the fundamental and applied aspects of synthesis and characterization of carbon nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanodiamond and nanoporous carbons), ceramic nanoparticles (whiskers, nanowires, etc) and composites.
On the Physics and Nanotechnology programme students learn how to design and manufacture materials using the smallest components available - atoms and molecules. They can work on the development of optical communications, biosensors, and the energy supply of the future, for example.
The MSc programme in Physics and Nanotechnology covers a wide range of technological, theoretical, and experimental techniques in modern physics. The applications include various topics, such as the development of nanostructured materials with tailor-made electrical, magnetic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties, manufacturing and integration of nano- and micro-components in systems design, modelling of complex biological systems, optical data processing and transfer, and the development of technologies for sourcing, storing, and converting sustainable energy - e.g. fuel cells and hydrogen technology.
The Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology - DTU Nanotech - is a highly esteemed research institution within the field of micro- and nanotechnology. Applied science, innovation strategies and state-of-the-art technology form our core identity as a scientific institution. We encourage technology transfer and technology development through industry collaboration, and industrial PhD students are an integrated part of our PhD programme.
The nanotech aspects of their research deal with in-situ visualization of biomembrane activity; nanometer dimensioned electrodes and fibre optics; self-assembling molecular and polymer materials; biomaterials as linkers for self-assembling molecular electronics, security applications and multiplexed sensing and nanophase biolithography.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology are built upon chemistry and physics. This degree is a solid science degree (physics and chemistry) but with a unique focus on nanoscience and nanotechnology. In the Years 3 and 4 of the degree the student chooses to major in either physics or chemistry, but all students do the nanotechnology modules.
The mission of the Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics is to continue to advance the basic understanding of electromagnetic metamaterials, exploring their capabilities and limitations across the electromagnetic spectrum. They want to develop fabrication techniques for metamaterials that may operate in various environments, with a particular emphasis on structures designed for terahertz, telecommunications and optical wavelengths.
The Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) is dedicated to elucidating the relationship between a vast array of nanomaterials ? from natural, to manufactured, to those produced incidentally by human activities - and their potential environmental exposure, biological effects, and ecological consequences. Headquartered at Duke University, CEINT is a collaboration between Duke, Carnegie Mellon University, Howard University, and Virginia Tech and investigators from the University of Kentucky and Stanford University.
The graduate program is designed to address the need for an interdisciplinary graduate education at Duke in Nanoscience that extends beyond the traditional disciplines and skills that are taught within any existing department.
The Fitzpatrick Center for Photonics and Communications Systems at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering aims to help turn North Carolina into a photon forest where research and development in photonics can create the kind of technological advance and economic growth found in California's Silicon Valley.
