The Design of Medical Devices Conference

Once again this year, the Nano Center will take part in the 2019 Design of Medical Device conference. DMD 2019 is an international forum bringing together world-class MedDevice professionals, academics and researchers to share perspectives in medical device design. Tours of the Nano Center's cleanrooms and labs will be offered to DMD attendees. The conference runs April 15-18, and early bird registration is open. For more information, please go here.

Explore Nano Program

MNC is pleased to announce a special program aimed at helping external users (those not affiliated with the University of Minnesota) get started on projects. The Explore Nano program provides a subsidy for new external users to offset training and lab use charges. Go here for full details.

Lab Orientation

Orientation sessions for the Keller and PAN cleanrooms are held twice a month, on the first Wednesday (1 - 2 PM) and the third Thursday (10 -11 AM). Check with the MNC office in PAN 140 to confirm the day and time of the next orientation.

If you plan on using just the Nanomaterials or Bio-Nano labs, you need not attend these orientations. Schedule a lab orientation and training session directly with Jim Marti.
