Try the University at Albany New York.  They have invested over $5,000,000,000.00 inNano facilities.

Good luck,


Graduate Programs

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:

  •  M.S. in Nanoscale Science
  •  Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science
  •  M.S. in Nanoscale Engineering*
  •  Ph.D. in Nanoscale Engineering*

CNSE offers the following graduate program leading to Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Medical Doctor (M.D.) degree:

  •  M.D./Ph.D. in Medicine and Nanoscale Science or Engineering

CNSE offers two dual-degree "Nano+MBA" programs:

  •  M.S. in Nanoscale Science/Masters of Business Administration
  •  M.S. in Nanoscale Engineering/Masters of Business Administration

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:

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:

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.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
