The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute (DNI) coordinates interdisciplinary research, education and outreach, and strategic partnerships in nanomaterials for all of Drexel University. Faculty, students, and industry partners collaborate in activities ranging from core research to improving the public’s understanding and interest in nanoscale materials.
Guided by theory and enabled by synthesis, the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute develops new science and technology exploiting the nanoscale. Its researchers inspire students by creating an atmosphere of excitement, fun, and creativity. We design frontier science and technology by teaming globally, and providing a place where physicists, chemists, biologists, ceramicists, metallurgists, and mathematicians join in teams with engineers to solve problems.
For the past decade, Purdue’s Discovery Park and its leading scientists nurtured the research that has now become the foundation of BGI’s graphene technology and team. BGI is developing the building blocks of the future in materials at the forefront of nanotechnology. Today, we are creating biosensors and supercapacitors that will revolutionize whole industries.
