Cancer therapy using unique imaging, delivery system focus of NSF CAREER Award
Date:3/29/2010

etermine appropriate nanoparticle properties and laser parameters to achieve selective and effective cancer treatment.

Her CAREER award will also allow her to create a course on nanotherapeutics for undergraduates and graduate students. It will explore the basics of nanoparticles, the experimental measurement of nanoparticle interactions with biological tissues, photothermal, and photochemical mechanisms of nanotherapy. The course will also address the computer modeling of cellular and tissue responses to nanoparticles.

This CAREER project will also establish a multi-tier education and outreach plan that will integrate research elements and discoveries into multidisciplinary educational and research experiences for high school students and teachers from underprivileged schools in West Virginia and undergraduates and graduate students at Virginia Tech.

"It is my long-term career goal to be able to develop effective and selective cancer therapies based on nanotechnology that can be readily implemented as a viable treatment option for millions of cancer patients," Rylander said.
