RCMI Nanotechnology and Human Health Core Facility

Equipment/facility: Facility


The RCMI Nanotechnology and Human Health Core Facility focuses on the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials for imaging, labels for bioassays, and active targeting for in vivo or in vitro diagnostics. The Core studies the interaction of nanoparticles with living cells for application in the targeted delivery of drugs, genes, and proteins; tissue engineering scaffolds; artificial organs and implants; and bioimaging and cell labeling.
