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.

Tayyaba Hasan, Ph.D.

Professor of Dermatology, HMS

Our group has extensive expertise in the photodynamic therapy of cancer, infections, and infectious disease, as well as targeted drug delivery using site-directed photochemistry. Students will participate in the design and testing of photoactivatable nanoparticles for the treatment of ovarian, prostate, pancreatic, or head and neck cancer.
