Nanotechnology research at Northeastern encompasses nanomanufacturing, nanomaterials, nanomedicince and bio-nanotechnology, and the societal impacts and ethics of nanotechnology.
The Baskin School of Engineering at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC) focuses synergies between nanotechnology and the areas of information technology and biotechnology.
The role of the Institute for Applied Biosciences is to serve as Ben-Gurion University's Center for biotechnology, which has recognized importance of nanoscale biosensors and nanoelectronics for medicine, environmental quality, and other areas. The school takes a broad multi-disciplinary approach to basic and applied research.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering, with an annual budget of nearly $5.47 billion.
Chemistry has entered an exciting phase of its development, where the chemist's understanding of molecular behaviour will be central to developing new areas of molecular science. Reflecting this, we offer multidisciplinary postgraduate research courses in nanomaterials, biomolecular science and chemical biology.
Biomimetic Connections, LLC is a California-based firm established in 2002 to advance the commercialization of bio-inspired and biomimetic IP. Through our suite of biomimetic and bio-inspired IP portfoilios, BioParadigm ACCESS, we serve corporations, bio/material scientists and product design engineers across the engineering spectrum seeking to identify, utilize and commercialize research outcomes derived from 'biological design paradigms' (tm)
Igor Linkov, Research Managing Scientist, US Army Engineer Researc and Development Center; Adjunct Professor of Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University
Dr. Linkov’s research in the area of emergent materials, including nanomaterials, has been supported by the DOD, DOE, EPA and private clients. Dr. Linkov was part of the EPA Nanotechnology review panel.
CMP's research activities focus on the processing, structure, property and performance relationships for all classes of materials including metals, ceramics and polymers.
The Center addresses particulate and chemical contamination and defects that directly affect semiconductor fabrication, where aggressive miniaturization will reduce feature sizes to less than 35 nm in the next 5-10 years. It also affects MEMS and NEMS devices with micro and nanoscale channels, and hard disk head fabrication, which is rapidly approaching semiconductor VLSI feature size.
