The Biocontainment Unit was designed to provide a full spectrum of care, from quarantine to intensive care treatment. It is designed to handle everything from smallpox, SARS and avian influenza to the Ebola virus. It is staffed by 30 highly trained medical professionals who have special training in disaster management, cardiac life support and bioterrorism.
The Biological Process Development Facility at the University of Nebraska (BPDF) offers biopharmaceutical process development designed for successful technology transfer from the bench to large-scale GMP manufacturing. The BPDF develops scalable processes and manufactures material suitable for non-clinical and clinical studies. Specializing in recombinant peptides and proteins, the BPDF has produced GMP materials since 1998. During this time, processes for over 50 products including vaccines, other biotherapeutics, chemokines, and agricultural/industrial enzymes have been developed.
Provides critical research infrastructure to researchers with cutting-edge instrumentation. BM3 is the foundation for inter-disciplinary collaborations supporting theoretical & applied research endeavors. Specialized instrumentation allows researchers to examine the effects of torsion, loading strain, and harsh environmental conditions to the nanoscale in 2-D and 3-D.
Are located at UNMC and UNL campuses. Highly trained researchers and staff work with select agents to advance technology in detection and medical countermeasures against potential biological warfare agents or other high-risk pathogens.
The Center for Advanced Surgical Technology seeks to develop innovative surgical technology through collaborative, interdisciplinary biomedical research.
Conducts research on biodefense and biosecurity related problems in animal and human health, bio-surveillance & detection of bioterrorism agents, epidemiological studies, and antibiotic resistance.
Provides expertise in the quantitative sciences, including biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research, and to coordinate the collaborative design, planning, conduct, analysis and interpretation of laboratory, clinical, and public health research studies.
Develops, validates, and publishes scientific foundations for collaboration-related phenomena and helps organizations to apply findings to make performance differences.
A world-class program integrating established expertise in drug delivery, gene therapy, neuroscience, pathology, immunology, pharmacology, vaccine therapy, cancer biology, polymer science and nanotechnology with state-of-the-art expertise, custom services, and equipment.
Investigates emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, chronic disease, and cancer. Experts and affiliates utilize large population-based surveillance sites, hospitals, and laboratories across continents to discover, teach, and learn with a single mission - “to improve population health".
Are comprised of twin research towers. These state of the art facilities have a combined 541,000 square feet of core facilities, seminar rooms, auditoriums, and laboratories, including the Nebraska State Public Health Lab and UNMC Biodefense Research laboratories.
The Extreme Light Laboratory at UNL is the host of the Dicoles Laser, with more power than 100,000 Hoover Dams and speeds of 30 billionths of one millionth of a second. Diocles and physicist Donald Umstadter, principal scientist and director of the laboratory, are putting UNL at the forefront of international high field physics and laser research.
Connects university researchers, industry leaders, and government entities through transportation research – specifically highway design and safety. MwRSF conducts safety performance research on existing appurtenances and the design & development of novel technologies.
Is a nationally recognized center of excellence in materials research science and engineering, nanoscience, and nanotechnology. NCMN supports over 90 primary researchers who investigate atomic manipulation, properties affected by nanoscale dimensions, self-assembly, ordered nanoarrays, quantum dots and wires, nanoelectronics, quantum computing, nanomechanics, nano-optics, nanoelectromechanical systems, and molecular design.
Addresses pathogenic and therapeutic questions of some the most devastating viral and neuro-immune disorders facing the global community. Molecular, epidemiological, and biochemical approaches are employed to address fundamental questions concerning viral replication, latency, assembly and pathogenesis.
Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) Is a cutting edge educational and research institute of the University of Nebraska that promotes collaboration and solution development in engineering and information technology. Current research focuses on the intersection between data analytics and civil infrastructure, cybersecurity, automated decision support, architectural engineering, and biomedical informatics. The IT Innovation program housed at PKI finds IT solutions to real world problems and moves these solutions to the marketplace.
