CaNCURE Co-op Showcase
The CaNCURE Team would like to send out a congratulations to the 8 trainees who completed their CaNCURE co-op this December! We were so proud to see all your accomplishments at our second annual CaNCURE Co-op Showcase and to learn that for many of you, this co-op was a career-defining experience!
Robert N Hanson, Ph.D.
Matthews Distinguished University Professor, NEU
Our lab develops targeting strategies for highly specific delivery of nanoparticle- and molecule-based therapeutics to breast and prostate cancer. Students will study the selectivity of self-assembled polymeric nanoparticles to tumor cells by using a multimeric peptidomimetic nanoplatform comprised of tumor cell-specific amino acids.
Peter Caravan, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor in Radiology, HMS
My research broadly encompasses the design, synthesis, and application of molecular and nanoparticle-based imaging probes for detecting disease and monitoring treatment response. Students will help develop and study magnetic resonance, computed tomography, or positron emitting probes for imaging cancer.
