A team of researchers at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNL) has developed a nanotechnology platform which targets the lymphatic system, an approach that could provide more effective treatment and therapies against infectious diseases and cancer. 

The Frederick National Laboratory’s Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory recently supported a first-of-its-kind study examining whether nanoparticles used for drug delivery, vaccines, and biomedical imaging were toxic over an extended period of time.
