The HNF is an established centralized user facility containing over $10M of micro- and nano fabrication and characterization equipment, accessible by external and internal academic, government and industrial users.
The CREST Nanotoxicity Center that consists of an interdisciplinary group of researchers from Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Engineering performs comprehensive investigations of nanomaterials that will strengthen the research infrastructure of Jackson State University. The research projects include different aspects of the development and production of nanomaterials and investigations of their toxicity.
Professor Bowen's research interests are centered around clusters and nanoparticles. A major objective of Dr. Bowen's research is to provide a molecule's eye view of many-body, condensed phase interactions. The study of size-specific and composition-specific clusters provides an incisive means of addressing this fundamental and longstanding problem in physical chemistry.
The Institute for Nanobiotechnology has been established at Hopkins to bring together expertise from the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, biology, medicine, and engineering to enable the creation of new knowledge and new technologies.
The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the Johns Hopkins University (JHU), one of 26 MRSECs funded by the National Science Foundation, is composed of scientists at JHU, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Research in the Center focuses on the science and engineering of magnetoelectronics. Research focuses on magnetic nanostructures.
The School's Engineering Programs for Professionals offers the Nanotechnology Option with the Master of Materials Science and Engineering program. Within the option, students can pursue a concentration in nanomaterials or biotechnology.
The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) has been formed through a collaboration between North Carolina A&T State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. JSNN's research and educational programs focus on the emerging areas of nanoscience and nanoengineering. The strengths of the two universities in the basic sciences and in engineering make them ideal partners for this new, interdisciplinary school.
