UAMS Theranostics Lab

The Theranostic nanomedicine program at UAMS is an integration of early diagnosis and treatment of melanoma developed to identify a tumor cells’ circulation in the blood stream by looking directly through the patient’s veins using high-pulse-rate lasers. The project included 4,200 SF of clinical trials intake support areas on the 5th and 10th floors of the Walker building (originally the Arkansas Cancer Research Center) and 8,000 SF of research laboratories on the 12th floor of the Winthrop Rockefeller P. Cancer Institute Tower. The funding for both the research as well as construction was provided through 2 separate grants each provided by the National Institute of Health.  Cromwell also provided LEED Consultation for both the 12th floor and clinical trials areas.
