The Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) is a University institute focused on new science and technology based on nanoscale materials.

We carry out frontier science and technology by teaming locally and globally, and providing an environment where physicists, chemists, biologists, and all engineers may collaboratively solve forefront problems and create new scientific understanding.

VINSE researchers inspire students by creating an atmosphere of excitement and creativity.

We function as an interdisciplinary center, eliminating traditional disciplinary boundaries and enabling a new paradigm for research and innovation.
