Title: Fighting Multidrug-Resistance with Biodegradeable Nanoparticles
Description: Researchers from Northeastern University, the Roger Williams Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (all part of a NCI Cancer Nanotechnology Platform Partnership) focus on nanotherapeutic strategy for multidrug-resistant tumors. In this image, multifunctional biodegradable nanoparticles were used to administer agents directly into cells. Researchers hope to be able to deliver anticancer therapies through this mechanism.
