With all of the exciting advances in technology, UNCG is proud to be involved in the race. According to a recent press release, $850,000 was awarded to Dr. Yousef Haik, Dr. Parke Rublee, and Dr. Nadja Cech for use in their research projects. In total, the university system awarded over $3.8 million to 18 projects at 13 universities.

Haik is the Director of the Center of Research Excellence in Nanoscience, which started in 2007. As stated by the UNCG website, the goals of the Center are: 1. To develop novel classes of nanomaterials with superior physical and biological properties that can be functionalized for innovative biotechnologies. 2. To recruit, mentor and educate a diverse population of outstanding students at the undergraduate and graduate levels in nano-biotechnology. 3. To secure patents and transfer technologies that has commercial potential.
