ASSIST Center Director Dr. Veena Misra (center left) and Deputy Director Dr. John Muth (center right) are pictured in the Nanostructures Laboratory at North Carolina State University (NCSU). The ASSIST Center, an NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC) begun in 2012, brings together researchers at NCSU and partner institutions to create self-powered devices that help people monitor their health and understand how it is affected by their environment.

Researchers in the ASSIST Center, an NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC), will use nanomaterials and nanodevices to develop self-powered health monitoring systems. Some of these devices could be worn on the wrist, like a watch.
