Curry group shares nanoparticle technology
with the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology

Graduate students, Ariful Ahsan (Chemistry) and Kristy Crews (MSE), where invited to spend one week working in the University of Wisconsin – Madison Center for Sustainable Nontechnology (CSN) to train center personnel on current nanoparticle fabrication methodology being explored within the Curry research group.  CSN is a Phase I Center for Chemical Innovation from NSF, which started in September, 2012. The center focus is on developing a molecular-level understanding of how nanoparticles interact with biological and biomimetic systems.  Particle making methodology from the Curry group will used to fabricate metallic and bimetallic nanoparticle systems that can be used in the study of nanoparticle interactions with biological entities.
