Abstract

CNST Workshop 2012

May 2–3, 2012

Showcasing University of Illinois research in bionanotechnology/nanomedicine, nanoelectronics/nanophotonics, and nanomaterials/nanomanufacturing, leading to cross-campus and industry collaborations

National Center for Supercomputing Applications Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Workshop Premise

The broad objective of the University of Illinois Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) workshop is to showcase University of Illinois research in bionanotechnology/ nanomedicine, nanoelectronics/nanophotonics, nanomaterials/nanomanufacturing, and computational nanotechnology/nanomechanics.

The general framework of the nanotechnology workshop is similar to those held on campus since 2003; which were all well attended by industry and academia. Some of those interactions have since then led to industry and cross-campus collaborations. The CNST-led forums and workshops have contributed tremendously toward the formation of multidisciplinary teams leading to the establishment of multimillion dollar new nanotechnology centers on-campus. The workshop will provide a forum for industry interactions and collaborations. The workshop brings together campus community (faculty, graduate and undergraduates, administration) from UIUC and other academic institutions, and industry engaged in cutting-edge research. A workshop panel will discuss the roadmap to future direction of research and development in nanotechnology and regional partnerships.

Established in 2001–02, the University of Illinois Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) is the premier center for nanotechnology research, education and training, and entrepreneurial and outreach activities.

CNST draws its strength from working as a collaboratory involving the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center, Coordinated Science Laboratory,Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory, Institute for Genomic Biology, Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, Center for Nanoscale Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical, Manufacturing Systems, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the Schools of Chemical Sciences and of Molecular and Cellular Biology, and other multidisciplinary centers.

It brings together nanoscale research from across the campus, drawing faculty from engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, neuroscience, agriculture, medicine, and other areas. The center envisions seamless integration of research from materials to devices to systems and applications. CNST is uniquely located to harness the entrepreneurial and technical spirit in downstate Illinois, with ongoing linkages with the University Research Park, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, and the State legislature. Industrial and international linkages have also been initiated through multidisciplinary centers. In addition, CNST has embarked on developing a curriculum for nanotechnology education, which will transcend a number of campus departments and units. Exceptional students with interest in nanotechnology projects have been awarded fellowships, as the center prepares the next generation workforce. CNST-led efforts have led to leveraging of existing nanotechnology research labs into also hands-on training sites for molecular and cellular biology, mechanobiology, micro and nanofabrication, and enabling technologies, and tissue engineering.

The CNST thrives on its cutting-edge core research in bionanotechnology, computational nanotechnology, nanocharacterization, nanoelectromechanical systems, nanoelectronics, nanofabrication, nanomaterials, and nanophotonics. Translational areas include: nanoagriculture and food, nanoenvironment, nanomanufacturing, nanomedicine, nanosecurity, and societal implications of nanotechnology.
