What's a Nanodiamond? The NDX project started with a vision that cancer treatment could be dramatically enhanced with a tiny carbon nanodiamond particle that is thousands of times smaller than the width of a human hair (only 5 nanometers in diameter!).

Nanodiamonds are byproducts of mining and refining, meaning they are already created on a daily basis, and they are inexpensive! This makes them an ideal platform for sustainable nanomedicine.

Using simple cleaning procedures, they can be made safe for biomedical applications.

Their surface properties are unique and remarkable, and have redefined drug delivery and imaging.
