The University of Notre Dame will attend the 2016 BIO International Convention, which is hosted by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) from June 6 - 9, 2016 in San Francisco. Represented Notre Dame Research groups at the event include the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI), the Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano), as well as Technology Transfer.
Notre Dame's Center for Nano Science and Technology
NDnano is a world-class, collaborative research center that includes faculty from seven departments across the colleges of Engineering and Science. The Center is focused on developing, characterizing, and applying new nanotechnology-based materials, processes, devices, and solutions that will better society.
NDnano’s mission is to promote, enable, and advance multidisciplinary nanotechnology education and research to include:
- defining, manipulating, and controlling the properties of new nano-materials
- collaborating with peer universities, industry, and government to accelerate advances in the field of nano science
- developing solutions and applications that help address society's global issues while representing a force for good in the discussion on the ethics and possible societal impacts of the new science
Twenty-one students have been announced as awardees of the Naughton Fellowships for 2016. The research fellowships were awarded to undergraduate, Master’s, and Ph.D. students from the University of Notre Dame and from four universities in Ireland.
Notre Dame Research will be participating in the Alumni Association’s Annual Reunion event on the first Friday of June on the third floor of the Main Building. From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., the dome will be open to tours, where several offices will open their doors to alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the University. Additionally, other buildings on campus will also be open for tours throughout the day.

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), is one of the most common and useful analytical techniques for both the hard and soft sciences. It allows objects to be imaged at size scales even smaller than 1 nm in some cases. This talk will show several examples of images taken with SEM and discuss the underlying process that makes it possible.…
