Targeted Nanotherapeutics for Treatment of Acute Leukemia

Dr. Carnes’ research employs materials developed using state-of-the-art nanotechnology combined with cutting-edge cell recognition systems to create microscopic suitcases which carry drugs directly to cancer cells. Control over simple properties such as the size and appearance of these tiny packages will allow us to deliver virtually any combination of therapeutics and drugs to any type of cancer without the damaging side-effects associated with current chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
