University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers presented innovative new strategies for using tiny particles – particles the size of a DNA molecule or the width of a human hair – to boost cancer treatment as part of the Carolina Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence/National Cancer Institute site visit on Tuesday.

The researchers, who are members of the Carolina Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence, delivered updates on their latest research into using nanotechnology to potentially improve cancer treatment as part of the day’s agenda of meetings, talks and poster presentations at the Carolina Club.

The day included a presentation by Leaf Huang, PhD, into the potential use of a nanoparticle formulation of a drug to impact blood vessel dilation around tumors, and another from UNC Lineberger’s Alexander Kabanov, PhD, DrSci, Mescal S. Ferguson Distinguished Professor in the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, into using nanoparticles to deliver multiple therapeutics simultaneously.
