The BioNano Research Facilities facilitate research at the intersection of biology and nanomaterials. The BNRF was established in 2012 under an award from the National Science Foundation EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Cooperative Agreement #1003907, the state of West Virginia--WVEPSCoR via the WV Higher Education Policy Commission--and the WVU Research Corporation.
