University of Arkansas heightens nanomedicine research efforts

Another player is joining the field of nanomedicine-related research and development: The Arkansas Nanomedicine Center. To be housed at The University of Arkansas' College of Medicine, the new institution will gather the university's 35-plus faculty members from various departments who are pursuing or thinking of pursuing nanomedicine-related research under one umbrella, according to Arkansas News. The goal is to encourage researchers from different disciplines with the same interests to work together toward figuring out innovative nanomedicine-related treatments that could cure disease or repair tissue damage.
