Congratulations to Dr. Chen for being elected as AIMBE fellow.


Dr. Chen received the 2016 Bioconjugate Chemistry Lectureship Award for his extensive contributions at the interface between chemistry, biology, and medicine that have helped define the field of nanomedicine.


Dr. Chen and Theranostics journal have been featured in an article of Laser Focus World magazine, and in C&EN (Chemical and Engineering News).


NCI provides a data repository for characterized cancer nanomaterials, the cancer Nanotechnology Laboratory (caNanoLab). Authors and readers of Theranostics are invited to learn more about the information deposited and how they can add their characterized nanomaterials data.
Office of Cancer Nanotechnology Research in NCI has publicly launched a Dialogue on Nanotechnology in Cancer public discussion forum. Readers of Theranostics are invited to participate in this dialog.
