Dartmouth Investigators Conduct Systematic Testing of Deimmunized Biotherapeutic Agents
January 28, 2015 | NCCC
Dartmouth engineering professor Karl Griswold and his collaborator Chris Bailey-Kellogg have established a novel testing platform for a number of promising new drugs.
Led by Brian Pogue and David Gladstone, investigators demonstrated that induced Cherenkov light can be used to confirm that the dose distribution in dynamic treatment plans is being delivered correctly.
