Nanostar Research Areas

NanoSTAR Insitute's research encompasses three broad theme areas: electronics, biomedicine, and energy & the environment, and the University has several core facilities that support the research community.

Biomolecular Systems 

Biomolecular Systems encompasses targeted drug and gene delivery, synthetic biology, and cell and molecular engineering. Biotechnology utilizes the manipulation of molecules of biological components in order to focus on molecular level solutions to issues and problems in the life sciences related to the environment agriculture energy industry, food production, biotechnology and medicine.

Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing

Nanomanufacturing is both the production of nanoscaled materials, which can be powders or fluids, and the manufacturing of parts "bottom up" from nanoscaled materials or "top down" in smallest steps for high precision, used in several technologies such as laser ablation, etching and others.
