We have established a Villum Kann Rasmussen Centre of Excellence within nanome­chanical sensors and actuators. The centre will initiate a focused, fundamental and interdisciplinary research within nanomechanics with the goal of creating a platform for new types of nanomechani­cal components for drug delivery as well as realizing ultra sensitive sensors, which give reliable and reproducible data. The centre unites several internationally leading research groups in Denmark and focuses on pharmacological applications.
