The Interdisciplinary Center for Nanotoxicity is a research center sponsored by the National Science Foundation. It was established under the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Jackson State University in 1998. The ICN incorporates four JSU Departments to include faculty members, post-docs, and students in chemistry, biology, physics and engineering, covering research topics involving nanoparticles and nanomaterials.

Our goal is to build a diverse community of researchers, educators, and students who appreciate research opportunities created to avoid environmental and health hazards recognized as nanomaterials.
