Birck Nanotechnology Center Dedicated

Event Date: October 1, 2005
Imagine a repairman capable of entering and working in a human cell, or a specialized tool invisible to the naked eye being built atom by atom. These are just a few of the promises of nanotechnology, and Purdue is advancing its leadership in this critical area with the dedication of the Birck Nanotechnology Center on Oct. 8.

The 187,000-square-foot facility hosts a suite of clean rooms and “high accuracy” labs that will allow structures to be probed on almost an atom-by-atom basis. As with the Bindley Center, the Birck Nanotechnology Center is a critical part of the connectivity provided by the new home of the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.
