Penn State's gateway to nanoscale science and technology
The new home for 21st century science
The Millennium Science Complex, situated in the center of the University Park campus, is the future home for the Materials Research Institute and the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, and will house the NNIN/Nanofabrication Facility and the Materials Characterization Lab. With the opening of the Millennium Science Complex in the summer of 2011, Penn State will enable new collaborations across scientific disciplines and provide world-class facilities for research at the leading edge of 21st century science and technology.
