Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Nanomedicine
- Northeastern University
The Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Nanomedicine was created to perform studies at the juncture of two fast-growing scientific areas: biotechnology and nanomedicine. The Center is directed by Dr. Vladimir Torchilin, University Distinguished Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
This Center aims to host and coordinate research in pharmaceutical nanocarriers, controlled drug and gene delivery, drug targeting, intracellular targeting, experimental medical imaging, and cancer immunology, and train young researches in these areas.
Research at the Center is strongly supported by grants from the NIH, research foundations and industry.
Over the years, students and researchers from many countries were working in our labs including India, China, Germany, Denmark, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Argentina, Italy, Russia, Spain, Ireland, Taiwan, Armenia, Georgia, and others.
