Regular cancer treatment focuses on killing the cancer cells through large doses of medicine, but it also kills other cells in the body and causes significant side-effects and potential long-term effects. UCalgary researcher David Cramb is looking at using nanoparticles to deliver the drugs solely to the tumor in much smaller, more effective quantities, leading to more targeted treatments that are easier on the body.
Watch this webinar to learn more from Cramb about the potential breakthroughs that can be made possible through nanomedicine both in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
David Cramb is a professor in UCalgary's Faculty of Science and the head of the Department of Chemistry. His research interests are in the application of nanotechnology to biomedicine, including nanotoxicology, cancer, membrane dynamics, and pain transduction.
