NU-CCNE Northwestern



The NU-CCNE is under the leadership of Co-Directors Chad A. Mirkin and Steven T. Rosen and is governed by the Executive Committee, Center Steering Committee, and CCNE Technology Council. Each of the five research projects has an active leader who is responsible for ensuring successful achievement of milestones.

In addition to the professional leadership and individual investigators, the day-to-day operations of the Center are managed on the Chicago campus (through the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center) and the Evanston campus (through the International Institute for Nanotechnology).

Center members and contributors are listed below in easily identifiable categories.
