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
Haifeng Gao, assistant professor in the department of chemistry and biochemistry, was honored with an NSF Early Career Development Award (CAREER) for his proposal entitled "Chain-growth Polymerization of AB2 Monomer to Produce Hyperbranched Polymers".
PittCon Conference and Expo is the world’s largest annual premier conference on laboratory science.
