Nanomedicines are complex drugs with tremendous promise for facilitating new therapeutic breakthroughs. However, these novel therapeutic treatments also pose unique characterization challenges due to their inherent polydispersity, compositional complexity, and the unique relationship between the nanoparticle’s physicochemical properties and the biological performance of the formulation. NCI’s Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory (NCL) provides state of the art characterization services...

Proteins adsorbed to nanomaterials in a biological environment mediate cellular recognition, uptake, and toxicity of nanomaterials. Here, I'll present the development of experimental methods to characterize this population of proteins (also known as the protein corona fingerprint), as well as computational methods to predict the protein population in an array of conditions. To support expanded modeling efforts in this area, I will also comment on best practice in methodology and reporting for...
