Iran has dominated the news recently in a chess match between itself and the West. Despite turbulent politics and current sanctions against Iran, Iran's scientific community is thriving, especially in the field of nanotechnology. Dr. Abdolreza Simchi, the number fourth ranked nanotechnologist in all of Iran, discusses his work, the challenges he faces as an Iranian scientist, and how nanotechnology can help his people in the infrastructural, educational, and public health sectors.

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!
