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!




Upcoming Events

Save the Date! CaNCURE Nanomedicine Day is June 14!

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Our third annual Nanomedicine Day will feature talks and posters by CaNCURE co-op students, Nanomedicine Academy students, and other graduate students performing nanomedicine research at Northeastern University.  We invite all faculty and students to join us on June 14th to celebrate the accomplishments of our Nanomedicine trainees! No registration is necessary to attend.  Check back […]

John D. O'Bryant African-American Institute -- NEU, 12:00 PM

Mentor Spotlight

Anna Moore, Ph.D.

Professor of Radiology, HMS

Our research deals with non-invasive imaging of molecular targets in cancer. Students with have the opportunity to explore the use of targeted multimodal nanoparticles for imaging of tumor growth, metastasis, and treatment.

Jon C Aster, M.D., Ph.D.

Professor of Pathology, HMS

Our lab studies the oncogenic role of Notch signaling in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and other cancers in order to identify small molecules that act synergistically with Notch pathway inhibitors. Students will have the opportunity to study nanoparticle-based formulations of these inhibitors for improved anti-cancer therapy.
