The goal of the Center for Cross Training Translation Cancer Researchers in Nanotechnology (CRIN) is to recruit and cross-train young scientists to bring the tools of emerging technologies in nanoscience, nanoengineering, mesoscale engineering, and imaging sciences to the care of cancer patients.

We are based at the Moores Cancer Center of the University of California, San Diego. UC San Diego is an ideal institution for developing competitive postdoctoral fellows, medical doctors, and predoctoral students as future investigators in emerging technologies and cancer research. In only four decades, UC San Diego has established itself as a leader in higher education, especially in the sciences.

We have a total of 14 research thrusts divided over four themes:

Our aims include:
