HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 14, 2014 – High Point University recently joined the nanomanufacturing consortium at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) in Greensboro.
The consortium is a collaborative project with different schools and industry in the Triad, focused on preparing students to conduct basic and advanced research. It is located in a $60 million facility about 20 minutes north of HPU’s campus.
“Initially, this will provide HPU’s science majors with resources for undergraduate research in chemistry and physics,” says Dr. Brian Augustine, chemistry department chair.
Both Augustine and Dr. Briana Fiser, assistant professor of physics, will conduct research in the facility with HPU undergraduate students.
“This new collaboration is an ideal way to increase the number of undergraduate research opportunities available to our students here in North Carolina,” says Fiser.
Augustine says other departments are considering additional opportunities for research at the facility.
