Academic Health Center

Center for Drug Design

The Center for Drug Design is a distinctive research facility in the Academic Health Center of the University of Minnesota. We are dedicated to using cutting edge technology to develop highly effective drugs.

Characterization Facility

The Characterization Facility is the largest and most centralized instrumentation facility for materials research at the University of Minnesota.

Center for NanoEnergetics Research

The Center for NanoEnergetics Research is an Army funded center created in the spring of 2001 and exists at four university sites, with the University of Minnesota as the lead institution.

Center for Micromagnetics and Information Technologies

The Center for Micromagnetics and Information Technologies is a research center at the University of Minnesota associated with the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Chemical Engineering and Material Science. Our research focuses on data storage technologies, including magnetic recording, materials, and signal processing for storage.

Magnetic Microscopy Center

The Magnetic Microscopy Center was formed for the purpose of investigating problems in micromagnetic physics using various microscopies by Professor E. Dan Dahlberg at the University of Minnesota. The MMC has focused on the applications and advancement of Magnetic Force Microscopy. With great versatility in Scanning Force Microscopes, along with the many other magnetic probes to which the MMC has access, such as Superconducting Quantum Interference Device, and Vibrating Sample Magnetometer.

Particle Technology Laboratory

The Particle Technology Laboratory is one of the leading centers of small particle research in the U.S. Major facilities of the Laboratory include 15,000 square feet of general laboratory space, and 500 sq. ft. of class 100 cleanroom space; wind tunnel, filter testing, and vacuum facilities; instruments for particle generation, measurement, sampling and analysis in the 0.002 to 100 µm diameter range; and microscopes, electron microbalances, gas analyzers, anemometry and other laboratory instruments.

Supercomputing Institute

The Supercomputing Institute for Digital Simulation and Advanced Computation is an interdisciplinary research program spanning all colleges of the University of Minnesota. The Supercomputing Institute provides supercomputing resources and user support to faculty and students and is a linchpin program in the University's broad-based digital technology effort.

Tissue Mechanics Laboratory

The mission of the Tissue Mechanics Laboratory is to provide specialized instruments and methods to characterize the mechanical properties of soft biological materials, provide quantitative loads to living tissues, foster research in these areas, and provide a resource for the University community and industrial partners.
