About the Center

Our Mission

To unify, coordinate, and promote research and scholarship in collaborative efforts in nanomedicine devoted to nanotechnology-based platforms that prevent, diagnose, surveil, and treat various types of diseases, enabling translational drug development.

Our Objectives

  • To promote collaborative research in nanomedicine and diagnosis/surveillance.
  • To maximize synergies in pre-clinical drug development by interdisciplinary collaborations.
  • To foster high impact sponsored extramural project grants involving cross-disciplinary researchers in disease treatments and nanomedicine.
  • To operate a UW core facility devoted to nanomedicine development.
  • To engage in strategic alliances with academic, industrial, and government partners on cross-disciplinary nanomedicines and drug development.
