Converging on cancer at the nanoscale
Marking its first anniversary, the Koch Institute’s Marble Center for Cancer Nanomedicine goes full steam ahead. See the article in MIT News here.
Drs. Belcher, Bhatia, and Hammond are innovating at the tiniest scale—developing tools to see, target and kill cancer cells before they can cause any harm. See article here.
Robert Langer, The Delivery Man
The downfall of many drugs is that they are not taken regularly or as prescribed. Robert Langer has developed a polymer that could solve this problem. See article here. Photo credit: Nick D Burton; original article by Kathryn Nave from WIRED Magazine.
