Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Student Council (NNSC) is a student-run organization developed to enhance knowledge in the areas of nanotechnology and nanoscience. We encourage the participation of students from all disciplines and backgrounds. Every year we hold Nanoday to celebrate nanoscale engineering, science, and technology, to recognize researchers advancing the field, to applaud innovators translating outcomes into valuable products and services, and to increase understanding of its potential to positively impact lives. We are excited to host the NanoFlorida Conference 2021 on our gator home!

FOCUS AREAS
Nano-Chemistry Study of nanoscale molecule interactions. Research aims to discover new properties only possible through nanoscale manipulation of compounds.
Nano-Medicine Nanotechnology for clinical use. This discipline includes nanomedicine distribution and pharmacodynamics.
Nano-Enabled Agriculture Nanotechnology that aims to improve crop yields. Diagnosing plant diseases, agrochemical creation, and genetic engineering are a few of the applications.
Nano-Physics Distinct phenomena occurs on the nano-level. Some of the exciting developments include inventing the scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) technique and discovering carbon nanotubes.
Nano-Photonics Nanotechnology that investigates how light behaves. It is a branch of electrical and optical engineering.
Nano-Fluidics Study of fluid transport on the nanometer scale. This transport includes the ions and molecules confined in the nanometer scale.
Nano-Materials Research focuses on practical applications of nanoscale material manipulation. Is interdisciplinary with many of the other disciplines in this table.
Nano-Electronics Research of electrical components and how to improve them. Quantum mechanics significantly affect the innerworkings of nanoscale electrical components.
Nano-Mechanics The study of physical systems on a nanometer scale. Some fields include nanomaterials, nanotribology, nano-fluidics, and nanoelectromechanical  systems (NEMS).
