The lab interested in developing 'smart' biomaterials that mimic the complex signaling environments of natural tissue development. Particular emphasis is placed on temporal and spatial control over growth factor activity, gene transfer, and mechanical stimulation. Includes research on nanostructured materials.
The Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology is a multi-institutional partnership devoted to investigating the fundamental molecular mechanisms by which nanoparticles interact with biological systems. Our goal is to use fundamental chemistry to enable the development of nanotechnology in a sustainable manner, for societal benefit. Funding for the CSN comes from the National Science Foundation Division of Chemistry through the Centers for Chemical Innovation Program.
University of Wisconsin-Madison - Materials Research Science and Engineering Center on Nanostructured Interfaces
The NSF-sponsored Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin ? Madison (UW MRSEC) is focused on the fundamental study of the structure and properties of interfaces at the nanoscale level of atoms and molecules. It is doing so across a wide array of materials platforms, from inorganic semiconducting materials to liquid crystals with engineered defects.
Current research areas include (1) relationship among morphology, size, reactivity and stability of nano-crystals; (2) nanoporous structures and pore surface properties in geological systems; (3) geochemical reactions (with focus on sorption, desorption, precipitation, dissolution, and replacement reactions) in the nanoporous environments; and (4) self-assembled nano-structures in the earth systems.
The National Science Foundation established the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin - Madison to explore the self-assembly of complex materials and building blocks at the nanoscale and develop the means of communicating advances in nanotechnology to the public.
The group's research focuses on novel nanomaterial growth and nanodevice development for advanced nanoelectronic systems and energy harvesting.
