Chemical & Nanoparticle Synthesis Core Facility

Page header image

The Chemical and Nanoparticle Synthesis Core (CNSC) was established by the Center for Targeted Therapeutics and Translational Nanomedicine (CT3N) to meet the chemical and nanoparticle design and synthesis needs of Penn investigators. The CNSC was formed with support from ITMAT (Clinical and Translational Science Award), the Perelman School of Medicine, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the Department of Chemistry (School of Arts and Sciences).

The CNSC supports researchers by providing in-house expertise in medicinal chemistry, metal chelate chemistry, polymer synthesis, and nanoparticle production and surface functionalization. Our chemists provide custom, problem-specific support for researchers in medical, chemical, and materials sciencefields.

In addition to custom services, the CNSC also provides a Catalog of pre-made reactive metal chelates for radiolabeling and other imaging applications, reactive near-infrared imaging agents, hydrophobic and hydrophilic nanoparticles.
