Nano & Molecular Medicine
I²NM² is a new campus wide research center dedicated to the discovery and application of fundamental and translational medical science based upon previously unexplored chemistry combined with nanotechnology and the biosciences. I²NM² will shortly become the international leader in the reinvigorated field of boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), a cell-selective binary radiation method for cancer, arthritis and evolving non-invasive surgical protocols. The BNCT program will be conducted with the dedicated neutron source now under construction at the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR; the most powerful university-based research reactor in the world) and the use of the life sciences laboratory of the Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center, including small animal facilities. I²NM² will be housed in its own 30,000 ft² laboratory building now nearing completion in Reactor Park adjacent to the MURR and the Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center.
