CeNS – Center for NanoScience

Nanoscience is widely acknowledged as one of the key technologies of the 21st century. This multidisciplinary research field has already resulted in many commercial applications such as self-cleaning coatings, new types of light sources or improved sunscreens based on innovative functional materials and substances. Today, very promising research areas in nanosciences and nanobiosciences deal with new approaches for medical diagnostics and therapy and explore new methods of information processing and data encryption.
The Center for NanoScience (CeNS) was established by physicists and chemists at LMU Munich with the objective to stimulate and coordinate research efforts in the field of nanoscience in the Munich area. CeNS promotes and supports interdisciplinary collaborative projects and fosters synergy effects by offering a dynamic platform for the exchange of expertise and technical instrumentation. Since its foundation in 1998, CeNS has developed into a stimulating network of researchers from the Faculties of Physics, Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Biology and Medicine. Junior scientists and students at CeNS take advantage of a broad educational program composed of weekly colloquia and lecture series, winter schools, workshops and soft-skills seminars. Doctoral students can furthermore apply for scholarships of the International Doctorate Program “NanoBioTechnology” which is organized by CeNS.
