CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University has been awarded an additional $5 million to continue leading a nanotechnology research partnership with the University of Washington.

This comes from the National Science Foundation. The research is in areas such as glucose monitoring for diabetics, improved battery electrodes, better solar cells and more energy-efficient fiber optic networks.

“This is great news for our universities and great news for the students, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs who will benefit through easy access to critical nanotechnology facilities and expertise,” said Oregon State’s Greg Herman, head of the School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering and the James and Shirley Kuse Chair in Chemical Engineering.

In 2015, the National Science Foundation awarded OSU and the University of Washington $4.5 million to create and lead the Northwest Nanotechnology Infrastructure partnership. This latest award funds the partnership for five more years.
