On 24 August,Tumor Nanotechnology Research Center, a center of nanotechnology for tumor diagnosis and treatment, was officially created in Tianjin. The center was jointly established by the CAS Institute of High-energy Physics (IHEP), the CAS affiliated National Center for Nano-science and Technology (NCNST), and the Tianjin Medical University Cancer Institute and Hospital (TMUCIH).
CHEN Chaoying, standing committee member of Tianjin Municipal People’s Congress, QIAO Junlu, vice president of CAS Beijinig Branch, Academician CHEN Hesheng, director of IHEP, ZHAN Lianfang, vice director and party secretary of NCNST,WANG Huangyu, the party committee secretary of IHEP, JIANG xiaoming, associate director of IHEP and other Tianjin municipal leaders were present the signature, launching and establishment ceremony.
By giving full play to the advantages shared by the three parties, according to Prof. ZHAO Yuliang from IHEP and co-chair of the center, the center aims at providing an interdisciplinary research platform for fundamental oncology studies, and tumor diagnosis and treatment. Via the platform, researchers from different fields will join forces in developing nanotechnology for tumor diagnosis, treatment, and drug development. The center strives to put nano-material drug into the clinical application in an early date to benefit the tumor
