Welcome to Nano@Wayne, a website that provides information on various nanoscience and nanotechnology initiatives at Wayne State University. Our faculty researchers come from diverse fields such as Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Medicine, Pharmaceutical Science, and Physics. Many collaborate in the areas of NanoDevices, NanoMaterials, and NanoBioMedicine, where WSU strives to make noteworthy contributions to new knowledge and technology. Please follow the links to our faculty and their departments. You can also view our faculty interests and publications, as well as our instrumentation and facilities.
We have initiated a seminar series comprised of outstanding speakers from around the country as well as from our own faculty, and welcome your participation. The seminars are available for viewing on-line, as well as real time so you can participate in the Q&A sessions.
WSU nanoscience faculty meet regularly to discuss interests and collaborations. If you would like more information or want to join the group, please send a note to Freda Giblin at email@example.com.

- PAD Seminar - Online Resources for Interdisciplinary Research and Team Science
- March 19 2014 at 1:00 PM5057 Woodward, 6th FloorThe offices of the Vice President for Research, Provost, and Faculty Affairs (School of Medicine) are pleased to offer this free career development seminar series for WSU faculty, chairs & directors, postdoctoral trainees & graduate students, and administrators. Seminars are free, but registration is required. This seminar, Online Resources for Interdisciplinary Research and Team Science, will take place Wednesday, March 19, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in OVPR Conference Room A on the 6th floor of 5057 Woodward (corner of Woodward and Putnam). Growing interest in interdisciplinary research and team science in the academy as well as public and private spheres is matched by an expanding literature. The Division of Research is supporting efforts at Wayne State University by developing resources on the Interdisciplinary Research link on the Division’s website. Individuals may use them for self-tutorials. Program and project directors and advisors may draw on them for coaching, and in grant applications. They may form the basis of workshops, training modules, and short courses. Topics include: • Authoritative definitions of interdisciplinary research and team science • Answers to FAQs about Interdisciplinarity, including introductions and overviews, strategies for institutional change, and resources in science and technology, social sciences, and humanities • Answers to FAQs about Interdisciplinary Education, including introductions and overviews, pedagogy, textbooks, models and strategies, and learning assessment. • Answers to FAQs about Team Science, including introductions and overviews, collaboration, evaluation, training, and further resources. • Preview of new training modules on tenure and promotion, collaboration, training, evaluation, and barriers and strategies for change. Seminar participants will also have the opportunity to share their experiences and suggestions for additional resources or materials. Presenters: Julie Thompson Klein, Faculty Fellow for Interdisciplinary Development in the Division of Research and Professor of Humanities in the English Department Kendall Soucie, Research Associate and Team Science Coordinator for Diabetes and Obesity Team Science (DOTS), an OVPR Multidisciplinary Research Group Incubator Program We hope you can join us for one of these important sessions!
- COS Pivot/WSU ResearchConnect Training
- March 20 2014 at 1:00 PMUndergraduate LibraryFaculty, staff and students are invited to a hands-on demonstration to learn how to join and use COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect. Wayne State University subscribes to COS Pivot, the single most comprehensive source of funding information available. Whether your work is in the sciences or the arts, COS Pivot services can help support and advance your research. Much more efficient than Googling, the database is an aggregation of funding information that is verified for accuracy, updated for currency and formatted for quick, targeted searching. COS Pivot is available to all current WSU faculty, staff and students. Click on the links below to view COS Pivot handouts Getting Started Finding Scholars Finding Funding Opportunities Your COS PIVOT Home Page In an effort to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary research, Wayne State University is committed to using innovative research tools and information technologies to promote collaboration. ResearchConnect is one of these tools which provides a searchable database of expertise across most disciplines at WSU. Explore the profiles, publications, and grant data of hundreds of researchers within our university. Follow the network and collaborations within WSU, throughout the SciVal Experts Community, and across the national DIRECT and VIVO networks. The publications and grants listed for faculty members reflect their expertise in the unit(s) with which they are affiliated here at WSU or at prior institutions and offer a snapshot of their knowledge and interests. This training seminar will take place Thursday, March 20, 2014, 1-2:30 p.m., in the Undergraduate Library, Computer Lab A. This event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required!
- Biomedical Publications Seminar
- March 26 2014 at 8:30 AMMargherio Conference Center, Mazurek Education Commons, Scott HallThe Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host a biomedical publications seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students. The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus. A Biomedical Publications Seminar will take place Wednesday, March 28, 2014, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Margherio Conference Center, Mazurek Education Commons at Scott Hall. The fee for seminar materials is $75 and may be paid for by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot. Most junior faculty members, post-doctoral research fellows, and graduate students receive little formal training on how to publish / present the results of their work. Included in this comprehensive seminar is everything from practical tips on composing the manuscript, through choosing the appropriate journal and understanding its review process, to strategies that are related to revision and resubmission. Participants learn what the most efficient approach is for producing publishable data; how to decide who will be included as authors, and in what order; how to write with maximal clarity and precision; how to avoid giving the perception of conflict of interest; and much more!
