Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology CBEN

One of the aims of Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN) is to characterize the unintended consequences of nanotechnology, particularly in the environmental arena. As one of the six nanoscience and engineering centers funded by the National Science Foundation, CBEN has a mandate to clear major roadblocks to nanotechnology commercialization. As the only center funded under the National Nanotechnology Initiative that focuses exclusively on environmental and biological systems, they are developing ways to use nanotechnology to clean our environment and improve public health.
