Center for Fluorescence Technologies and Nanomedicine

The Center for Fluorescence Technologies and Nanomedicine (CFTN) former Center for Commercialization of Fluorescence Technologies (CCFT) is located in the Department of Cell Biology and Immunology at the University of North Texas Health Science in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Center was founded by laboratories of Drs. Gryczynski (Fluorescence), Dr. Ben Harris (Protein Chemistry) and Dr. Julian Borejdo (Muscle Science) in 2006.

The CFTN includes three spectroscopic laboratories, protein chemistry laboratory, peptide and organic chemistry laboratory, muscle research facility, surface preparation and chemistry preparation rooms, with a total area 3,200 sq. ft., plus 650 sq. ft. of faculty offices.
