Our mission is to use nanotechnology to improve global health by enabling a correlation between personal health and personal environment, that empowers individuals and doctors to manage wellness and improve quality of life.
In the video on the right, Dr. Benton Calhoun, Associate Professor of Electrical and Company Engineering and Thrust IV Lead, along with his research group describes the advanced technologies and goals of the Center as a whole.
The goal of the NSF’s Engineering Research Center Program is to create
a culture that links scientific discovery to technological innovation through transformational engineered systems research and education. These centers make advances in technology and produce engineering graduates who will be creative innovators in a global economy.
NSF Nanosystems Engineering Centers are part of the National Nanotechnology Initiative— a government-wide activity designed to ensure that investments are made in a coordinated and timely manner and to accelerate the pace of revolutionary nanotechnology discoveries.
