Wilsdorf Hall

Nanodays is an annual event is held in conjunction with UVa's Engineering Open House.  This family-friendly, fun and free event will be at Wilsdorf Hall on Whitehead Road opposite the football stadium.  All ages can enjoy hands-on nano, giant nanotubes, lab tours, nano games, design competition and the popular Oobleck pit!


Don Griffin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia. After his training in Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles, Don joined the faculty at the University of Virginia in 2017.

His lab works on creating advanced biomaterials to support both fundamental science and translational approaches to tissue regeneration. They engineer biomaterials using a unique combination of microscale geometric control and novel chemistries.


Kyle is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Virginia, and by courtesy, Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience. He was previously a Ruth L. Kirschstein NIH NRSA postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University with Prof. Sarah Heilshorn in the department of Materials Science and Engineering. Kyle completed his Ph.D. and B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder and the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Rolla, MO), respectively.
