The Center for Cancer Research Nanobiology Program (CCRNP) serves as a catalyst to move forward multidisciplinary efforts in the area of Cancer Nanotechnology. The activities of the principle investigators in the program fall into several broad areas that include membrane structure and function; protein interactions; biomedical image and database analysis; structural bioinformatics; structural glycobiology; molecular information theory and computational RNA Structure. The investigators are working together to study how biomolecules can be used to design nanodevices for in vivo imaging, as diagnostic tools and for targeted drug delivery to combat cancer and other diseases. In addition, such devices can be used to understand and track cellular processes and disease progression. Accomplishing these goals requires an understanding how macromolecules form functional assemblies and networks, and how they enter cells and tissues. The program forms partnerships with the NCI's broader Nanotechnology Program, other CCR basic research laboratories and clinical branches, as well as with the broader extramural community, to enhance the interface of physics and computational sciences with biology.

Note the name of the lab has been changed as of August 1, 2005 from Laboratory of Computational and Experimental Biology (LECB) to Center for Cancer Research Nanobiology Program (CCRNP).
