Northwestern receives major award for nanotechnology cancer center

elf-Assembly, which opened in 2002; the O.T. Hogan Biological Sciences Building; the Technological Institute; and the Arthur and Gladys Pancoe-Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Life Sciences Pavilion. On the Chicago campus, center researchers will be housed in the Montgomery Ward Memorial Building and the 12-story, 220,000 net square-foot Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center, which opened in April 2005.

Additionally, researchers will be able to utilize a wealth of instrumentation at 16 existing shared facilities including the recently established Nanoscale Imaging, Fabrication, Testing and Instrumentation (NIFTI) Facility on the Evanston campus and the Bioinformatics Core and Biostatistics Core facilities on the Chicago campus.

The center will provide an array of educational and training programs to a diverse constituency. Speakers at seminars and symposia will disseminate research progress and results to the clinical oncology community and build effective bridges of communications between practitioners and researchers. A research program in ethical and social implications of nanotechnology in translational research will be launched, engaging center researchers with philosophers, social scientists, public policy makers and the public. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will be involved in center research at all levels, and curriculum enhancements are expected to reflect this new initiative.

Eighteen companies have expressed formal interest in partnering with the center to help transition new technologies into the private sector. Academic collaborators include the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Yonsei University in South Korea.

Key leadership of the new center will be provided by Mirkin as director; Rosen as a member of the executive committee; Jill Pelling, professor of pathology and associate director for translational research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of
