For Faculty


Nanoscale research at UVa encompasses three broad theme areas: electronicsbiomedicine, and energy & the environment, and the university has several core facilities that support the research community.  

To facilitate research across Grounds and in order to connect outside entitites with our resources, we provide a nanoSTAR Concierge Service.  

The concierge service is designed to enhance collaborations between various academic units of The University by enabling a forum for allowing investigators to utilize nanotechnology toward drug delivery, targeted imaging, and diagnostic modalities. Basic science and clinical investigators are often challenged with an inability to engage faculty expertise across Grounds in materials design for “nano-solutions” to address the pressing issues in medical fields. We welcome external users as well and seek to enable users in industry and academia to have similar access as our internal constituents. Please note that external users will be charged fees for service and will receive a contract prior to the start of the selected project.

The solution is nanoSTAR’s Concierge Service, which facilitates the following:  

  • Nano formulation and device platform fabrication
  • Nano characterization
  • Nano scale up
  • Nano targeting
