Upcoming Events

Making the most out of mentoring

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Anne L van de Ven, Dept of Physics, Northeastern University

121 Snell Library -- NEU, 2:50 PM

Mentor Spotlight

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.

Trainee Spotlight

Thomas Hanlon

Health Sciences, '17

Uptake and localization of nanoparticles in prostate and lung cancer cells as a function of time and nanoparticle type

Connor Elkhill

Biomedicial Physics, '17

Implementation of novel MR-based attenuation correction in PET/MR pelvic scans

Muizz Zaman

Biology, '18

Radiotherapeutic synergism of thermogelling cisplatin-loaded polymers for cervical cancer treatment
