Our Mission

The Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences (MNIMBS) is a true multidisciplinary team of chemists, physicists, engineers, toxicologists, physicians, biologists, pharmacists, and (bio)informatics specialists collaborating on nanoscience in biology and medicine. The Institute involves approximately 60 faculty in a "no-walls" model using facilities in the Engineering, Medical and LS&A schools to enhance competitiveness for externally funded grants and contracts.

We have three goals:

~  First, to facilitate interaction among diverse scientific disciplines to accelerate discovery in Nanomedicine.

~  Second, to foster translational science with the goal to commercialize our discoveries.

~  Third, to fulfill our educational mission to build a multidisciplinary Rackham Graduate School Certificate program in Nanobiology, and to design a minor in Nanobiology for undergraduate students.
