The Association of Nanoscale Graduate Students (ANGS) is a multidisciplinary association with a focus on nanoscale scientific phenomena. Our goal is to cross link the physical sciences to enable cooperative methods of research and development among graduate students in the Nanoscience discipline. We promote the development of our graduate students in implementing plans of actions towards short- and long-term career goals. We serve as liaisons between new Nanoscience graduate students and both the UNC Charlotte and worldwide science communities. The ANGS long-term goal is to establish and maintain long lasting professional relationships within our organization. We strive towards professional excellence and awareness of the emerging discipline of Nanoscale Science.
