S&T welcomes Center for Single Nanoparticle, Single Cell, and Single Molecule Monitoring

Technologies for early cancer diagnosis and nanoparticle monitoring are in great demand and pose top challenges faced by scientists around the world.  The aim of Missouri S&T’s Center for Single Nanoparticle, Single Cell, and Single Molecule Monitoring (CS3M) is to offer technological solutions for these efforts by focusing on single nanoparticle, single molecule, and single cell monitoring.

CS3M also aims to develop these emerging technologies for broad applications to the life sciences, environmental monitoring, and others.

The center will be directed by Yinfa Ma, curators’ professor of chemistry, and will be housed in S&T’s chemistry department.  

S&T is one of the nation's top technological research universities and has educated many engineers, scientists, and innovators who are playing important roles in current technological advancements. CS3M is poised to operate within the university to lead these new technology developments with national and international impacts.
