This week, Angela Hwang, from our peer NNCI site nano@stanford, gives us a taste of nanofabrication with a Sunprint photolithography introduction and demo. Try it at home and send us photos of your pattern!
The Carolina Nanoformulation Workshop and the Nanomedicine Drug Delivery Symposium (nanoDDS) will jointly host a virtual meeting for 2020. The meeting will feature 3 days of lectures from distinguished speakers and daily roundtable discussions. The meeting is supported by the CNDD (Center for Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery).
During this CNW you will learn about:
- Cancer Immunotherapy
- Tumor Delivery
- Nanoformulation Characterization
- Promoting Diversity
- Research Funding
- Vaccines and Therapeutics for COVID-19

In early January, the NCSU Nanofabrication Facility (NNF) hosted a grand reopening. Dr. John Muth, Assistant Vice Chancellor Jon Horowitz (ORIED), and Dean John Gilligan (COE) opened the event, emphasizing the unique role of NNF on the NC State campus. NNF Director of Operations Phil Barletta then discussed some of the changes and improvements that are being initiated at the NNF including new equipment, a staff increase, and major building renovations. Nicole Hedges also highlighted NNF’s new website, which provides up to the minute lab conditions. Dr. Patrick Wellenius, an engineer at Protochips, and Mr. Wei-Yi Chang, a graduate student in Dr. Xiaoning Jiang’s group, spoke about the work they conduct in NNF and the support they receive from facility staff. Afterwards, attendees enjoyed pizza, refreshments, and each others’ company.
RTNN faculty, staff, and students have launched a free online course on nano-fabrication and -characterization tools and techniques. Through instruction and lab demonstrations, this course gives students a rich understanding of the capabilities of nanotechnology tools, and how to use this equipment for nano-scale fabrication and characterization. Students will learn the fundamentals through engaging video lectures and exciting demonstrations in RTNN facilities. To learn more and enroll in the course, visit the course homepage. We also invite you to participate in our live Q&A sessions on October 10th! Experts will answer your questions on nano -fabrication and -characterization.
