Dartmouth’s Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence: An Engineering in Medicine Collaboration

Friday, April 13, 2012, 6:00pm reception; 7:00pm program

University Club, 800 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA

Professors Ian Baker (Thayer School of Engineering) and Jack Hoopes (The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth) discuss how nanotechnology is being integrated into basic and applied cancer research at Dartmouth to develop new solutions for diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Dartmouth has been designated as a Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE) with a grant from the National Cancer institute. The CCNE places Dartmouth among top centers in cancer nanotechnology research nationwide and takes full advantage of Dartmouth’s culture of cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Ian Baker is the Sherman Fairchild Professor of Engineering at Thayer School, where he also serves as Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. He is Director of the Dartmouth Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence, where his most recent initiative involves the development of iron nanoparticles for cancer treatment.

Jack Hoopes is Professor of Surgery and Radiation Oncology at Dartmouth Medical School, and an adjunct professor of engineering at Thayer School. He is the principal investigator of the Dartmouth CCNE project on Optimization of Magnetic Nanoparticle Breast Cancer Treatment.

To aid in the planning of this event, please RSVP to DAASV by April 12.
