The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) is the flagship research institution located at Gateway Research Park. The facility is a 105,000 square foot two-story research building located on Gateway South.

The JSNN was established through collaboration between North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and the University of North Carolina  Greensboro. The JSNN builds on the strengths of both Universities to offer an innovative, cross-disciplinary graduate program that trains scientists in various emerging areas of nanoscience and nanoengineering.

The JSNN currently has six research focus areas including: NanoBiology, NanoMetrology, NanoMaterials (with a special emphasis on NanoComposite materials), NanoBioelectronics, Nanoenergy and Computational Nanotechnology. These technical areas afford numerous opportunities for collaboration with industry partners.

The facility includes: partner labs, cleanrooms, wet lab space, fermentation lab, thermochemical lab, tissue culture and cell culture space, biophysics lab, bioscience open lab, and a shared suite of analytical tools including a Carl Zeiss SMT ® Orion Helium Ion microscope – all operational and ready for use by corporate and research partners.
