Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology funded by NSF

The National Science Foundation has funded a new Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology.  With Prof. Robert Hamers as the center Director, the CSN

is a partnership between researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Minnesota, The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Northwestern University,  the University of Illinois, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory 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.
