Collaborative Projects

The Center has developed an initial set of Collaborative Projects between the Center faculty and external investigators. Each Collaborative Project critically depends on the use of the Center’s unique technologies and expertise. In some cases, the projects will support the technology development through its independent use in research, while in other cases the collaboration will be extending the application of the technology into an entirely new area, in a way that involves scientific and technical challenges. If you are interested in exploring a project with our group please contact us for more details.
