The Case CCC awarded seed funding to three investigative interdisciplinary teams on the topic of Cellular Molecular Imaging of Cancer: Cancer Microenvironment.
- Early Breast Cancer Detection Using a Novel Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) Technique of a Unique Biomarker of the Tumor
Susann Brady-Kalnay, PhD; Mark Griswold, PhD; Efstathios Karathanasis, PhD
- Development of Injectable Novel CNT/Fe2O3 Nanoparticle Complexes for TAM-specific Targeting, Imaging, and Elimination in the Treatment of Breast Cancer
Mei Zhang, PhD; Liming Dai, PhD; Julian Kim, MD; Chris Flask, PhD
- Exploiting the Tumor Microenvironment for Multistate Delivery of Nanomaterials and their Cargos: From Imaging to Therapy
Nicole Steinmetz, PhD; Ruth Keri, PhD
The ability to identify and image key common pathways that control cellular or molecular aspects of cancer biology and/or exploit the microenvironment for tumor detection or drug delivery is critically important in the understanding and treatment of cancer.
