Nanotechnology Community

Mission and Vision

American Nano Society was established due to the lack of a united community for people who works in various areas connected with nanoscience and nanotechnology. Like nanotechnology, we wish to introduce a new way of thinking for running a scientific organization. In this direction, we have developed (and are developing by member feedbacks) new ideas to better help members within the community.

The Society’s mission is to deepen our understanding of the nano world by advancing the field of nanotechnology. It does this by:

Fostering an international community of nanotechnology by promoting interaction among researchers from different disciplines including but not limited to chemistry, physics, medicine, and engineering while cultivating a community of thought leaders in the field.


Ensuring nanotechnology fulfills its potential for broad impact by facilitating the application of appropriate techniques and tools in nanotechnology research.


Educating students and the public by promoting nanotechnology literacy of students at all levels, and by providing a respected and authoritative voice on nanotechnology issues that are increasingly in the public eye.


Supporting the next generation of nanoscientists by providing active mentoring, networking opportunities, and support to attract the brightest scientific minds to the field and enable them to pursue successful careers as experts in nanotechnology.


Communicating discoveries by offering scholarly platforms for publication of high-quality, original nanotechnology research and key foundational discoveries.


Advocating continued support of nanotechnology research by advocating for support of discovery research and promoting the value of nanotechnology research.
