Stories from the NNI

By Lisa Friedersdorf, Mallory Hinks

This podcast series features voices from the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). Researchers and innovators discuss their work at the nanoscale, the challenges they’ve faced, and how they’ve connected with the NNI. If you want to learn more about nanotechnology, visit www.nano.gov or email us at info@nnco.nano.gov and check back here for more stories. To celebrate the NNI, special anniversary episodes of the Stories from the NNI podcast series will share the perspectives of experts from academia, government, and industry on key research and development advances in nanotechnology and how the NNI has changed the nanotechnology landscape. These experts will share their thoughts on emerging applications and research questions at the expanding boundaries of nanotechnology. The series will also highlight what has been learned about the potential environmental, health, and safety implications of nanomaterials, as well as the safe handling procedures that have been developed. If you’d like to share your story, please contact us at info@nnco.nano.gov.
