This facility is an open-access initiative in support of nano-scale devices, systems and materials research that encompasses a broad range of technologies and capabilities. The facility provides nanofabrication, analytical instrumentation, materials characterization and process-development laboratories for students, faculty and industrial researchers.
The research of the group interfaces with biomedical engineering, nanobiotechnology, electrochemistry, BioMEMS, biochemistry, nanomedicine, surface science, and materials science. The work done here looks ahead to the next generation of nanoelectrical components such as protein nanowires, DNA transistors as well as end use electronic devices such as Lab-on-Chip, biosensors and enzymatic biofuel cells.
The High-Performance Materials Institute at Florida State University is the pioneer in the process for manufacturing of carbon nanotube 'buckypapers'. The center has other research on-going in areas of nanotube systhesis, growth and nanocomposites.
INSI is an interdisciplinary initiative at Florida State University to foster a world-class program in the exciting emergent area of bio-nanoscience. The initiative builds on a solid foundation in bio-nanoscience at FSU that evolved from existing strengths in materials science, molecular and cell biology, chemical and biomedical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, and physics.
The UCF Board of Trustees approved a new interdisciplinary professional science master?s degree program that will expand UCF?s offerings in the rapidly growing field of nanotechnology. The new program is expected to begin in the fall of 2014 with 10 students.
CNBS will harness select world-class resources in nano-bio technology to produce tools and methodologies for early diagnosis of diseases and timely detection and intervention for chemical and bioterrorism threats, leading to high-value healthcare and homeland security deliverables. CNBS is one of UF's two new state-funded Centers of Excellence.
