Welcome to the NSF Center for Chemo-Mechanical Assembly

Established in 2017, the NSF Center for Chemo-Mechanical Assembly (CCMA) is dedicated to solving the challenge of controlling fluid flow at the micro- and nano level. By manipulating the behavior of particles using catalytic chemical reactions, we can drive the self-organization of particles and form useful micro-devices. 

About Us

The CCMA is established through the NSF Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCI) Program.
