Stanford University is a private research university founded in 1885 and operational in 1891 and located near Palo Alto, California. The university is engaged in nanotechnology research through various research groups, centers and labs.

According to their response to the California Department of Toxic Substances (CADTSC) carbon nanotube (CNT) call-in, CNTs are used regularly in 16 labs in pursuit of basic research on the Stanford campus.

According to their response to the CADTSC round two call-in for quantum dots and nano metal/metal oxides, 13 academic research labs at Stanford were identified as using the following nanomaterials of interest in 18 research projects throughout the campus: nanosilver, nano TiO2, nano ZiO2 and quantum dots. These nanomaterials are used in the basic and applied research areas of biomedical applications involving microscopy imaging, energy storage devices, fuel production and fundamental materials research. Researchers at Stanford use nanomaterials on the laboratory-scale. Those academic research labs that synthesize nanomaterials range in total amount produced from 0.2mg to 25 grams annually. Labs reported that they purchase between 10mg to 150 grams total annually, the majority of quantum dots are purchased as kits and contain nominal quantities of nanomaterials. Nano zero valent iron and nano CeO2 have not been used at Stanford.
