CaNCURE awarded $1.15M!

Northeastern University Professor Srinivas Sridhar has received a $1.15 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to implement a training program in cancer nanomedicine.   The cen­ter­piece of the new pro­gram, which is called “CaN­CURE: Cancer Nanomed­i­cine Co-​​ops for Under­grad­uate Research Expe­ri­ences,” is a unique part­ner­ship between North­eastern and the Ini­tia­tive to Elim­i­nate Cancer Dis­par­i­ties at the Dana-​​Farber/​Harvard Cancer Center. Over the next five years, a total of 75 under­grad­uate stu­dents will receive training to study and con­duct research in the lab­o­ra­to­ries of 35 leading sci­en­tists at North­eastern and DF/​HCC. These six-​​month co-​​op expe­ri­ences, facil­i­tated through Northeastern’s co-​​op office, will pro­vide stu­dents in majors ranging from bio­med­ical physics to chem­ical engi­neering with hands-​​on research expe­ri­ence and one-​​on-​​one men­toring in cancer nanomed­i­cine at these partner institutions.  Read the full article…
