Professor Nicole Steinmetz and her Center for Nano-Immuno-Engineering have received a five-year, $2.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop an immunotherapy for ovarian cancer using plant virus nanoparticles. The particles will be produced using 3D-bioprinting from Dr.

NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Liangfang Zhang and his research lab have developed a way to use nano-scale particles in the form of nanosponges as a way to soak up harmful pathogens and toxins from viruses. This advancement could help protect healthy cells against the COVID-19 infection. 

NanoEngineering professors, Dr. Joseph Wang and Dr. Liangfang Zhang, have developed an enzyme-powered Janus platelet cell robot to use for active and targeted drug delivery. This breakthrough can help develop multi-functional cell-based micromotors for numerous biomedical applications.

NanoEngineering Professor, Joseph Wang and his lab team have developed a wearable, non invasive Vitamin C sensor that could provide a new, highly personalized way for users to track their daily nutritional intake. This breakthrough is the first time an enzyme-based approach is used for vitamin…

NanoEngineering professor, Kenneth Vecchio, and his research lab is developing tools for screening large numbers of materials at an increasing rate. The method that Dr. Vecchio's team has developed is data-driven and they expect this machine learning framework to be useful in the development of…

NanoEngineering Department Chair and Professor, Shaochen Chen and his research lab worked together with the University of Cambridge to 3D print coral-inspired structures that are capable of growing dense populations of microscopic algae. This advancement could lead to the development of more…

Congratulations to Dr. Julian Ramirez (Lipomi Research Group), who recently received his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering. His defense on "Metallic Nanoislands on Two-Dimensional Supports as Mechanical Biosensors" was presented on June 1, 2020. Dr. Ramirez has been with the Department of…
Congratulations to Dr. Qiangzhe Zhang (Zhang Research Group), who recently received his Ph.D in NanoEngineering. His defense on "Biomimetic Nanoparticles for Anti-Inflammatory Therapy" was presented on May 6, 2020. Dr. Zhang has been a graduate student with the Department of NanoEngineering since…

NanoEngineering Program Receives ABET Accreditation

The NanoEngineering program (B.S.) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.orgABET is the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. UC San Diego's NanoEngineering program is the first of its kind in the nation to receive this accreditation. Our NanoEngineering students can feel confident that their education meets global standards and that they will be prepared to enter the workforce worldwide.

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies, and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public. Please visit the ABET website for more information on why accreditation matters.

Congratulations to the NanoEngineering department and students!
