Chinese center of nanotechnology for cancer diagnosis and treatment launched
(Nanowerk) On August 24, a center of nanotechnology for cancer diagnosis and treatment was officially inaugurated in Tianjin/PR China. The center was jointly established by the CAS Institute of High-energy Physics (IHEP), the CAS affiliated National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, and the Tianjin Medical University Cancer Institute and Hospital.
By giving full play to the advantages enjoyed by the three parties, according to Prof. Zhao Yuliang from IHEP and co-chair of the center, the center seeks to become an interdisciplinary research platform for fundamental oncology studies, and cancer diagnosis and treatment. Via the platform, researchers from different fields will join forces in developing nanotechnology for canter diagnosis, treatment, and drug development. The center strives to put nano-material drug into the clinical application in a early date to benefit the cancer patients.
