Soft materials are complex, with unique characteristics and functionalities spanning
multiple length scales. Silicon-based materials are typically rigid and their direct interfaces with
soft materials still represent an area with many open questions and unknown opportunities.... Read More ›

The NCI-supported Northwestern University Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) represents a unique partnership between researchers at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center and the International Institute for Nanotechnology.
Research at the CCNE focuses on the design, synthesis, characterization, and development of spherical nucleic acid constructs as effective nanotherapeutic, single-entity agents for the treatment of cancers.
The 2017 Nano Boot Camp will feature presentations by some of the CCNE researchers on their work (see agenda below).
This free event is an excellent way for clinicians and medical students to gain an understanding of nanotechnology, current advances, and the prospects for translating these advances to the clinic. Read More ›
