Stefan Bossmann, chemistry, and Deryl Troyer, anatomy & physiology, are at it again! Their promising new brain cancer treatment is getting major funding and attention from National Science Foundation! Here’s a video from NSF about the scientists’ “microscopic drug-carrying containers, nestled inside white blood cells and loaded with tumor-zapping medicine.”
Bossmann, Troyer, Punit Prakash, in electrical & computer engineering, and others received a $1.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Institute to develop a magnetic resonance imaging spectrometer that will be used to, among other things, heat and kill cancer cells while providing live, high-definition images of the heat’s effects. Read the full story.
Masaaki Tamura, anatomy & physiology, wrote a book chapter titled “Umbilical Cord Matrix Stem Cells for Cytotherapy of Breast Cancer” for the book Stem Cell Therapeutics for Cancer, which was published in December 2013. Dr. Troyer and his team helped write the chapter. Continue reading
