Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is all about thinking big on a small scale. The possibilities of nanotechnology are innumerable, with the potential to touch virtually every facet of applied science — from high-tech manufacturing to nanomaterials in the field of medicine. The University’s expertise in this branch of science is significant, with a large number of faculty members and graduate students currently engaged in nanotechnology research spanning many academic disciplines, including potentially life-enhancing work taking place at the UConn Health Institute for Regenerative Engineering in Farmington, Connecticut.
