Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano) promotes collaborative research in science and engineering to address unsolved scientific and technical questions with an aim to promote the greater good. Advances in imaging and characterization, multi-physics modeling, synthesis, growth, and nanofabrication are enabling breakthroughs in all science and engineering disciplines. NDnano is where Notre Dame faculty, researchers, and students meet to broaden understanding, discuss multidisciplinary research opportunities, and shape future research directions.
Notre Dame announces significant growth in research funding
Researchers from the University of Notre Dame have received $180.6 million in research funding for fiscal year 2019 — $100 million more than 10 years ago and a more than 27 percent increase from last year. The awards received support a broad range of projects that tackle globally significant issues, including vector-borne diseases, cancer, psychology, nanotechnology, hypersonics and much more.
Request for Proposals: NDnano Seed Grants
The Center requests multidisciplinary, multi-PI proposals from Notre Dame faculty to promote interdisciplinary research in nanoscience and technology. Of particular interest are proposals that address important scientific questions and grand technical challenges, and advance a Notre Dame research vision. Proposals are due January 15.
Students recap summer research experience with NDnano
Several students from Notre Dame and other universities spent summer 2019 engaged in research as part of the NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowship program. Read each student's short project summary. Projects for summer 2020 will be posted in January.
