Funding Information:
Against this backdrop of uncertainty, federal funding for nanotechnology research and development continues to grow, with almost $1.8 billion allotted for the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) in FY2011 (NNI 2010). This investment includes a considerable funding increase for the National Science Foundation (NSF) to research new nanobiotechnology methods and for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to research nanoscale
