SCHOOL RECEIVES $3.5 MILLION FOR NANOENGINEERING RESEARCH
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Three North Carolina A&T State University
nanoengineering professors at the Joint School of Nanoscience
and Nanoengineering (JSNN) have been awarded research grants
totaling $3.5 million. “The Department of Nanoengineering is off
to a fast start in research,” said Dr. James Ryan, dean of the
JSNN. “Competing successfully for $3.5 million in research
funding in the department’s first year and a half of operation
is a tribute to both the quality of these researchers and the
value of their work.”... It is located in the Gateway University
Research Park, South Campus, in Greensboro.
The awards are:
