Event description

Description

The annual Nano Boot Camp for Clinicians is designed to inform and engage clinicians and medical students on the most recent nanotechnology breakthroughs in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI)-supported Northwestern University Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) represents a unique partnership between researchers at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center and the International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN).

This free event is an excellent way to gain an understanding of nanotechnology, current advances at the Northwestern CCNE, and the prospects for translating these advances to the clinic.

The Boot Camp is free. Registration is required. Sandwiches and light refreshments available.
