MU's race to develop nanotechnology is taking place not only in the School of Engineering but also in medicine, radiology, physics and other fields. Each academic area has its own assets to offer, and the key to MU's progress seems to lie in their ability to collaborate.
"In nanotechnology, collaboration is the key," Thompson said. "This is by far the best university in the country in terms of creating a collaborative environment."
He said part of the reason MU is prioritizing nanotechnology is that, for now, there are fewer competitors and MU is positioned to take a leadership role.
"We can't compete with Silicon Valley, for example, to become a major player in semiconductor development," he said. "But we have a real opportunity in nanotechnology."
