The Center for Nano/Micro Systems and Nanotechnology was established in the College of Engineering at the University of Missouri in 2006 to serve the Midwest research community with opportunities for collaboration and to have access to advanced fabrication and characterization equipment. Its mission is to provide infrastructure and support to facilitate interdisciplinary research in MEMS, NEMS, nanotechnology, microfluidics, photonics, advanced materials, medicine and microbiology, and to create next generation leaders in their respective fields.

The CNMSN is co-directed by Dr. Shubhra Gangopadhyay and Dr. Sheila Grant with support from Associate Director  Dr. Raghuraman Kannan.
