At The University and beyond...
Across UVA Grounds, throughout the Commonwealth and beyond, nanoSTAR strives to provide a collaborative platform for nanoscale research and commercialization of products, to provide excellence in teaching and to provide outreach that promotes science, education and collaboration.
Our mission is to make The University the premier destination for students to pursue education in nano science and medicine and for people and organizations seeking nanoscale technologies to gain access to intellectual and material resources in order to advance science and technology. We collaborate with businesses and other universities to leverage resources and expertise. These partnerships enable the acceleration of research discoveries through technology transfer and commercialization.
