About the National Cancer Institute's Center for Cancer Research Nanobiology Program
The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the NIH, an agency under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the world's pre-eminent cancer research organization. The NCI engages in certain fundamental activities which include: conducting and fostering cancer research; reviewing and approving grant-in-aid applications to support promising research projects on the causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer; collecting, analyzing, and disseminating the results of cancer research conducted in the United States and elsewhere; and training and instruction in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The Center for Cancer Research Nanobiology Program (CCRNP) serves as a catalyst to move forward multidisciplinary efforts in the area of Cancer Nanotechnology. The program forms partnerships with the NCI's broader Nanotechnology Program, other CCR basic research laboratories and clinical branches, as well as with the broader extramural community, to enhance the interface of physics and computational sciences with biology.
