NanoSAFE Research

Interdisciplinary Research Teams

Our scientific and engineering research focuses on bionanotechnology for enhanced public security and environmental safety. Of particular interest is the development of fundamental knowledge needed for field-deployable sensors that can monitor DNA fingerprinting and the presence of specific heavy metals, pathogens, and other environmental threats in real-time. This research is organized within the framework of Interdisciplinary Research Teams (IRTs). IRTs include faculty from different departments working towards a common research goal. The interdisciplinary nature of the research is enhanced by the WVU Shared Research Facilities, which provide a research space where students, postdocs, faculty, and external users from different backgrounds work together.
