International journal of Nanoparticles and Nanotechnology (IJNN) is a multidisciplinary, peer reviewed journal which includes all the major fields in nanotechnology and Nano science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology brought up an unprecedented excitement in the scientific and engineering communities, especially the last decade. It is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced.  International journal of Nanoparticles and Nanotechnology   publishes original research papers during a broad area of nanoscience & engineering. IJNN provides an ideal forum for presenting original reports of theoretical and experimental nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Nanotechnology is a gathering of rising innovations in which the structure of matter is controlled at the nanometer scale, the size of little quantities of molecules, to create novel materials and gadgets that have valuable and one of kind properties. IJNN is naturally multidisciplinary, and welcomes submissions across biological, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. Contributions from both academia and industry are equally encouraged. IJNN also publishes innovative techniques and instrumentation for the fabrication, characterization and testing of nano-enabled devices and technologies, as well as advanced modelling and simulation methods.

Kai Griebenow

Professor

Dr. Griebenow received his Ph.D. in 1992 from the Max-Planck Institute of Radiation Chemistry and the University of Düsseldorf for work on the pigment organization in the green flexible bacterium Chloroflexusaurantiacus (Advisor Prof. Dr. Alfred R. Holzwarth). For this work he received the Otto-Hahn-Medal and joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Postdoctoral Fellow. There he was particularly successful when working with Prof. Dr. Alexander Klibanov from 1994 to 1996 in the area of pharmaceutical protein stability. In 1996 Dr. Griebenow obtained a position as Assistant Professor at the University of Puerto Rico (Department of Chemistry, Río Piedras Campus) and was fast promoted through the ranks to Professor in 2003. He directed the Department of Chemistry from 2007-2010. Dr. Griebenow has authored over 130 peer-reviewed papers in his career. He graduated 19 Ph. D. students from his research group and mentored >300 undergraduate students in research. Dr. Griebenow has received continuous funding throughout the past 20 years from the US NIH, the US DoD, US Dept. Edu., US NSF, and NASA. He has reviewed countless papers for more than 30 scientific journals and judged many grants for major funding agencies.
