Members

Creating an atmosphere of scientific creativity

 

CNSI’s all-inclusive membership culture celebrates diversity, creating a welcoming atmosphere of scientific creativity where ideas that would have been impossible just decades ago now flourish as the innovations that will define the 21st century.

Membership is open to all faculty scientists who work with nanotechnology. Research at CNSI can begin with a rudimentary idea or be the result of decades of discoveries. Researchers can join CNSI with a rigorous plan for their nanoscience or they can be completely new to the nanoscale world and come to CNSI for guidance, advice, and assistance in making nanoscience a more significant part of their research objectives.
