Self-assembling Nanomaterials to boost Biomedical Applications
Joel Collier (UChicago), together with Chad Mirkin and Milan Mrksich (NU), and David Eddington (UIC) received a CBC Lever Award in 2010 for a project titled: Nanomaterials for Cancer Diagnostics and Therapeutics. The CBC Lever Award matched a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Award to help establish a collaborative network of Centers of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNEs). Collier is a senior author on a paper, “Gradated assembly of multiple proteins into supramolecular nanomaterials”, that was published June 15, 2014 in Nature Materials and is attributed to the CBC Lever Award. The reported novel technology is likely to be utilized in a variety of biomedical applications such as diagnostics, vaccines and other therapeutics.

Chicago Synthetic Antibody Pipeline open for business
Supported by a CBC Lever Award, the Chicago Synthetic Antibody Pipeline (CSAP) is now open to the CBC community. CSAP is a high throughput pipeline designed to produce the next generation of affinity reagents: customized synthetic antibodies (sABs). CBC researchers can nominate protein antigens as targets for sAB generation using existing technology and/or apply for Pilot Projects that will focus on developing ways to extend the applications of the sAB technology.
