Micro-Nanotechnology & Molecular Engineering

Micro-Nanotechnology and molecular engineering research are concerned with the design and testing of microdevices which can affect the behavior of individual molecules or systems of molecules to perform specific functions. The nature of molecular interactions allows for an innumerable amount of potential applications.

Michigan’s combination of facilities, Medical School integration, and a NIH-supported training program specifically geared toward microfluidics creates a great environment for micro-, nano- and molecular research.
