View original article
ALBANY — Scientists at the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering recently received $5 million in federal grants, and more than $1.5 million of that will go toward the school's growing focus on biomedical research.
The money is part of $70 million in federal funding the NanoCollege has received over the past year from agencies ranging from the Department of Energy to the National Institutes of Health.
Among the NIH grants was $650,000 awarded to James Castracane, the head of the school's nanobioscience program, to create a tiny medical device that can be implanted in the body called a nano intravital device, or NANIVID.
