Joint institute for nanoscience planned
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Washington are preparing to form a joint institute in early 2001 that will bring together the resources of both institutions to pursue major discoveries in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Once official agreements are in place, graduate and postgraduate students and faculty from the University of Washington will collaborate with scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on joint research projects. These combined research teams will have access to the unique equipment and instruments of the William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy national user facility.
"We're looking forward to working together more closely with the University of Washington and the expanded opportunities that this joint institute will present," said Bill Rogers, associate laboratory director of Pacific Northwest's Fundamental Science Division.
