Physics and Nanotechnology Building

Your support needed at Legislature

During the Legislative Session, the University will be asked for specific examples of the impact of physics and nanotechnology research and why legislators should use finite capital investment resources to fund a new Experimental Physics and Nanotechnology Building this year. We need to hear from University of Minnesota alumni who are using physics and nano education, expertise, and resources at the University in their business or research.

Please share your stories with Lynne Osterman, executive director of MN Nano, at who is documenting timely anecdotes for the University to bring to legislators. We will give these examples to lawmakers to help deepen their understanding of how important this new building is to research and our economy.

Additionally, if you are simply willing to sign a letter of support for this project, contact Osterman at Your active support is essential to helping this project move forward.
