Researchers Use Nanoparticles to Selectively Target Tumor Cells in Two Cancer Models
March 25, 2015 | NCCC

Professor Karl Griswold: "The ultimate utility of anti-cancer nanoparticle technologies will depend in large part on their capacity to selectively home to cancer cells."

Immunomagnetic Assay On-a-Chip Captures, Analyzes Circulating Tumor Cells
March 24, 2015 | NCCC

Professor John Zhang led a team of bioengineers to find a new way to quantify rare tumor markers that allow oncologists to make prognoses and select therapies.

Dartmouth Investigators Make Photodynamic Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer Simpler, Cheaper
March 20, 2015 | NCCC

Researchers, including Dartmouth engineering professors Jonathan Elliott and Brian Pogue, have reduced the barriers for late stage pancreatic cancer benefiting from photodynamic therapy.

Flower-shaped magnetic nanoparticles may help destroy deep-seated cancer cells
March 12, 2015 | Materials Research Society

The Dartmouth magnetic nanoparticles form flower-like aggregates which helps them to generate cancer-killing heat while under the influence of low alternating magnetic fields.

Flower-like Magnetic Nanoparticles Target Difficult Tumors
March 3, 2015 | AIP Publishing

Dartmouth/Thayer researchers aim to treat deep-seated tumors by using a flower-shaped magnetic nanoparticle capable of reaching deeper within the human body.

Cherenkov Effect Improves Radiation Therapy for Patients with Cancer
February 25, 2015 | NCCC
