The Center for Nanomaterials Research at Dartmouth, CNR@D, is an interdisciplinary grouping of faculty and students studying the processing and properties of materials.

Research focuses on nanoparticles, and nanocrystalline and nanocomposite materials both in the form of thin films and as bulk materials, with a substantial emphasis on magnetic materials. CNR@D fosters close collaborations between experimentalists and theoreticians from different disciplines and departments.


The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, in conjunction with Dartmouth College and Thayer School of Engineering, has a community of scientists, clinicians, and engineers, focused on the enormous potential of nanotechnology for improving cancer diagnostics and therapy.

Research focuses include:
  • Detection and treatment of auxilliary lymph node metastases in breast cancer with site-directed nanodroplets
  • Development of temperature responsive copolymer assemblies for targeted delivery of cancer therapeutics
  • Folate Receptor targeting of antisense MCL1 oligonucleotide-containing liposomes to breast cancer cells
  • Development of molecularly imprinted polymers targeted to saccharide tumor markers
  • Protease-activated nanoprobes for fluorescence molecular imaging and photodynamic therapy
  • Magnetic hyperthermia for cancer treatment
