Biological Nanomanufacturing Summer School

The Biological Nanomanufacturing Summer School (BNSS) is a summer program for undergraduates dedicated to training a new generation of engineers and scientists trained in interdisciplinary nanomanufacturing techniques. BNSS uses laboratory demonstrations, industrial lectures, and experiential learning to educate students about manufacturing, biotechnology, and nanoscience. BNSS focuses on exploring the self-assembly of biologically inspired electronics via a case study format, with a range of examples drawn from the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, and materials science. The first annual BNSS was conducted in May 2013 at UCI, in a collaborative effort with the University of Texas at Dallas, Occidental College, and Mt. St. Mary's College.

The Society of Physics Students at UT Dallas

Professor Slinker is the faculty mentor for the UTD Chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS). In recent years, this group has won two national awards and received Notable Chapter distinction from SPS National. Our local chapter hosts guest lectures on physics careers, organizes social events, participates in outreach, executes research projects, and maintains a group Facebook page.
