  • Nanoscale Informal Science Education (NISE)
    A national community of researchers and informal science educators dedicated to fostering public awareness, engagement, and understanding of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology.
  • Nanoscience and Technology Institute (NSTI) 
    Chartered with the promotion and integration of nano and other advanced technologies through education, technology and business development and accomplishes this mission through its offerings of continuing education programs, scientific and business publishing and community outreach.
  • National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)
    Established in fiscal year 2001 to coordinate Federal nanotechnology research and development and provides a vision of the long-term opportunities and benefits of nanotechnology. By serving as a central locus for communication, cooperation, and collaboration for all Federal agencies that wish to participate, the NNI brings together the expertise needed to guide and support the advancement of this broad and complex field.
  • International Journal of Nanomedicine
    An international, peer-reviewed journal focusing on the application of nanotechnology in diagnostics, therapeutics, and drug delivery systems throughout the biomedical field.
  • NanomedicineCenter.com
    A website founded in March 2008 and dedicated to nanomedicine and bionanotechnology, very exciting subfields on nanotechnology. The site is maintained by five students from all around the world ( USA , Austria , Australia , Bosnia and Herzegovina and India ). The basic idea behind the website is to bring the latest news.
  • Nanowerk
    The site offers extensive nanotechnology directory, unique (and free) Nanomaterial Database, largest nanotech conference database, daily news coverage, exclusive Nanowerk Spotlight articles plus a vast range of other information and links.
  • NanoZone
    A website and exhibition at the UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science for eight to fourteen year olds interested in nanotechnology. The site explains what nanotechnology is, why it is important and who work on it using interactive games, videos and comics.
