About The Nanoworld Laboratories

Located on the west campus of the University of Cincinnati

The UC Nanoworld Laboratories are an interdepartmental research laboratory group which includes faculty from Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Chemistry, Aerospace Engineering and the UC Medical School. The labs develop innovative smart materials, sensors and devices by intersecting the various disciplines of science and engineering. The main concentration of research is in the Nanotechnology, Biomimetics, Composites and Smart Structures fields. The Nanoworld Laboratories are an exciting interdisciplinary experimental-theoretical learning environment for undergraduate through PhD level students.


The Nanoworld Laboratory Group is housed in the main campus of University of Cincinnati and is directed by Dr. Mark Schulz and Dr. Vesselin Shanov. The aim of the laboratory is to integrate different aspects of engineering and make a final product that could be put into practical use. The projects currently in progress at these laboratories includes a blend of aeronautical, mechanical, civil, electrical, material science and chemical engineering research. Students at this laboratory have an option of choosing courses from various fields of engineering to satisfy the completion of the projects that are in progress. Nanoworld is  part of the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials (ERC-RMB) - Website: The Nanoworld Lab Group is comprised of seven laboratories, each with a specific research focus.
