"Spicy world of NanoScience"
Try the University at Albany New York. They have invested over $5,000,000,000.00 inNano facilities.
CNSE's cross-disciplinary Ph.D. and M.S. curricula integrate the fundamental principles of physics, chemistry, computer science, biology, mathematics, and engineering with the cross cutting fields of nanosciences, nanoengineering, nanotechnology, and nanoeconomics. A comprehensive portfolio of courses provides fundamental knowledge in the design, growth, and propertie s of nanomaterials (including metals, semiconductors, polymers, and chemical and biological materials). This includes the integration, processing, testing and qualification of these materials in integrated nanocircuitry, micro- and nanosystems and sensors, and integrated optics.
CNSE offers the following graduate programs leading to Masters of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees:

Agree with Gary. Albany is the best. Was just there working on an article. They have over 300 multinational companies on site that undergrads and grads can work with. Around 800 acres of Class 1 NanoFabrication Clean rooms. And companies from all over the world are constantly coming into the area.
I was just looking over the website(s) for all that, and am fairly shocked.
It all seems about money.
No love for the science or technology at all. All about money. Startups, collaborations, sponsorships, product viability, time-to-market, green workforces . . . .
This seems to me to be the sort of thing that led to the Utah "cold fusion" debacle.
I admit I'm naive.
Also, as a personal grievance, I couldn't see one flippin' bionanotechnology center listed . . . .
You mean U Albany? You can visit the Nanobioscience site here: http://www.cnse.albany.edu/PioneeringAcademics/Constellations/Nanob...
And sure, Albany is very business-oriented, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just another side to the story. Businesses and nano also work well together because of nanotechnology's applicable and problem-solving focused nature.
They also have a spectacular local outreach program: http://www.cnse.albany.edu/Outreach/CNSEOutreachReport.aspx
That's not a bionanotechnology center.
The closest thing to it there that I saw was the mentions of "biomimicry" on the CSEN site(s):
But its research initiatives don't include any bionanotechnology.
