The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, in conjunction with Dartmouth College and Thayer School of Engineering, has a community of scientists, clinicians, and engineers, focused on the enormous potential of nanotechnology for improving cancer diagnostics and therapy. The group pulls together these diverse communities for educational and research purposes.
CNR@D, is an interdisciplinary grouping of faculty and students studying the processing and properties of materials. Research focuses on nanoparticles, and nanocrystalline and nanocomposite materials both in the form of thin films and as bulk materials, with a substantial emphasis on magnetic materials.
The CHN is focused on developing tools and processes that will enable high-rate/high-volume bottom-up, precise, parallel assembly of nanoelements (such as carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles, etc.) and polymer nanostructures.
