What do you want MIT.nano to be?

This is one of the largest and most ambitious building projects for MIT since the construction of the Main Group in 1916. The input of alumni, students, faculty, researchers, staff, and other members of our community is critically important to the success of our undertaking.


Alumni and friends with philanthropic or sponsorship comments or questions, please contact Yumi Yasutake (email or call 617.715.5153).

Shaping MIT.nano

MIT faculty, students, and researchers, please provide recommendations for equipment, technologies, educational tools, and programing of convening spaces within MIT.nano. Indicate which processes the facility should support to enable future experimentation, education, discovery, and outreach. MIT.nano will enable us to grow innovation communities. Which communities will you be a part of?  Which other communities would you like to see?

The leadership team for the MIT.nano project held community meetings on December 10 and 11 to present information and hear about opportunities for engagement with the MIT community. The presentation is available for the MIT community.

Office hours are most Friday mornings 9:30-11:00 in Building 16 overlooking the MIT.nano site. Email to to arrange another time.
