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

Check back soon for new events


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.


Zdravka Medarova, Ph.D.

Associate Professor in Radiology, MGH/MIT/HMS

The focus of my research has been the development and testing of multi-functional imaging/delivery vehicles for combined cancer imaging and therapy. More recently, our lab developed magnetic nanoparticles as delivery vehicles of miRNA-targeted therapy to breast tumors.
