Laboratory and Facilities
Founded in 2002, the ISN is a result of the Army’s vision to explore the potential power of nanotechnology to enable unprecedented advances in capabilities for Soldier protection and survivability.
To capitalize on this opportunity, the Army decided to create the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies as a university center for basic research on nanotechnology.
ISN equipment and facilities are available as resources to members of the MIT community. In order to help ensure that these resource remains available, and to safeguard both equipment and researchers themselves, ISN Administration has devised protocols for gaining access to ISN facilities and privileges for using ISN equipment. Completing and submitting the ISN Laboratory Access Request Form to ISN Headquarters, and reading the ISN Access Procedures and Policies and the ISN Chemical Hygiene Plan documents, are necessary steps in the process of gaining ISN access.
