Our philosophy is that nanomedicine will propel both the scientific knowledge and clinical approach to treating the most hard-to-treat and lethal cancers. The Laboratory for Cancer Nanotechnology is located at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and is part of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Case Center for Imaging Research. To learn more about cancer and imaging research at Case, we encourage you to further explore the websites of our lab and its affiliated centers.
