Notre Dame’s nanotechnology research efforts date back to the 1980s, when the studies were mostly simulation-based and focused on computation advancements. In the three decades since, research at the University’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano) has grown and evolved in a forward-thinking and distinctive way.
The module features the University’s key research areas, core facilities, and research news
Notre Dame Research (NDR) has launched a new module on the ND Mobile App. This module provides a snapshot of the research taking place at the University of Notre Dame while also providing important information for those conducting research on campus.
When discussing the module, Research Communications Program Director Joanne D. Fahey said, “ND Mobile allows its users to learn about everything from athletics to campus dining, and now the app will also offer that same level of accessibility and awareness for Notre Dame Research. Whether someone is visiting campus or is a faculty member or student, the ND Mobile App now provides an additional, easy-to-use resource to learn more about research, scholarship, and creative endeavor here at Notre Dame.”
The module offers five main sections: Our Research, How Do I…?, Twitter, News, and Contact. The ‘Our Research’ section offers insight into research in the colleges and schools as well as the University’s key research areas and core facilities. Like research.nd.edu, ND Mobile users can now view videos or photos, read short descriptions, and find resource links for various research centers and institutes on campus.
