University College London, The London Centre for Nanotechnology (London, UK)

UCL is one of the UK's premier universities and is ranked in the world's top 10. It is a world-class research and teaching institution based in London whose staff and former students have included 20 Nobel Prize winners. Founded in 1826, it was the only university in England at that time which admitted students regardless of race or religion. UCL was also the first to admit women on equal terms with men.
