Dartmouth Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence
Dartmouth has been designated as a Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) with a grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The CCNE places Dartmouth among top centers in cancer nanotechnology research nationwide and takes full advantage of Dartmouth's culture of cross-disciplinary collaboration. CCNEs are tasked with integrating nanotechnology into basic and applied cancer research in order to provide new solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The CCNE brings together Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth, and The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth to focus on the common goal of using magnetic nanoparticles to destroy malignant tumors.
