The IIN is made up of extraordinary people: from world-renowned researchers and their students, to forward-thinking industry leaders and outstanding administrators.
Under the leadership of Chad Mirkin, the IIN represents over 240 faculty from 32 departments and 4 schools at Northwestern University and collaborators from universities and companies around the world.
The IIN is also fortunate to have an exceptional group of business professionals as part of the IIN Executive Council. Led by David Kabiller, the Council is devoted to building a community of alumni, parents, and friends who are committed to advocating for nanotechnology research and education, promoting the IIN as a high-impact philanthropic opportunity, and advising IIN leadership on philanthropy, marketing, and bringing technology from the laboratory to market.
To find out more about the people who make up the IIN, please browse the individual pages.
The discoveries of Northwestern Professors Chad Mirkin and Mark Ratner, both pioneers in nanoscience and co-founders of the IIN, were featured in a special March 2012 issue of National Geographic titled “100 Scientific Discoveries That Changed the World.”
