The A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute was featured in an article in the Philadelphia Business Journal in January 2003, along with the A.J. Drexel Institute for Basic and Applied Protein Science. Professor Yury Gogotsi of Drexel's Department of Materials Engineering is director of the Nanotechnology Institute. The article also mentions the IGERT program, the NSF grant which was given jointly to Drexel and U. Penn to promote education in nanoscale science and engineering. The grant will fund 14 PhD students who are US citizens, 7 from Drexel and 7 from Penn. This unique program makes the students eligible to take classes at both universities.
