The  NSM  group  was established  in 2003  when  Sergiy Minko was appointed as Egon Matijevic Chaired Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science, Division of Chemistry and Physics, Clarkson University and relocated from the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, Germany (IPF) to the USA.

Nanostructured materials group is an interdisciplinary research team focused on the study and fabrication of synthetic "smart" materials and biomaterials on a nanoscale and the scale of single molecules. Stimuli-responsive materials for biomedical applications, sensors, molecular electronics, microactuators, microfluidic devices, lipid bilayers, membranes, textiles, super-hydrophobic coatings, and responsive dispersions are of group's special interest.
