Get Involved

Interested in learning how nanomedicine is used to detect and treat cancer? Want to get involved in developing new nanotechnologies for the clinic? We are looking to match undergrads at Northeastern University with leading Boston researchers and clinicians for a six-month, hands-on research experience.  If you are thinking about a career in cancer science, engineering, or medicine, come get involved in the world’s first undergraduate program in cancer nanomedicine!  We have 8 upcoming openings for the July – Dec 2018 co-op period.  We will be accepting applications starting in January 2018 via NUcareers.


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 third annual CaNCURE Nanomedicine Day and to learn that for many of you, this co-op was a career-defining experience!

 

 


 

Upcoming Events

Mentor Spotlight


Ralph Weissleder, M.D., Ph.D.

Professor of Radiology, HMS

Our lab aims to use novel imaging and sensing techniques to measure major protein and network hubs of interest in a quantitative and predictive manner. Students will combine advanced microscopic imaging with systemically injectable nanoparticle-based sensors to perform quantitative single cell analysis of cancers during drug treatments in vivo.


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.
