The Nanoscience Institute for Medical and Engineering Technology (NIMET) is a university-wide institute administered by the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering. Research in fields that study, engineer, or apply nanoscale breakthroughs at UF has grown in multiple disciplines across the entire campus and now involves over 280 faculty and staff in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, engineering, food/agricultural sciences, and more
NIMET serves to enable and support research and educational activities at the University of Florida in all fields of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. In addition, NIMET facilitates the collaborative engagement needed to develop and adapt nanotechnologies for novel medical, engineering, scientific, and agricultural applications.
