Cancer Close Up

A nanometer is a billionth of a meter. The images collected here as part of the 2017 NCI Cancer Close Up project exemplify NCI-supported research into how nanoscale materials and devices can improve the way cancer is studied, detected, prevented, and treated. Stop by the NCI exhibit booth to see many of these large-scale microscopy images on colorful display.
