The National Cancer Institute has awarded a five-year, $13.6 million grant to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Carolina Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (C-CCNE) based at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, for research to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer through applying/using advances in nanotechnology. The grant will support the continued work of the center launched in 2005 as part of NCI’s Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer. The C-CCNE, one of eight original centers in the national program, is one of nine that are funded in the new phase.
