Colloidal Inorganic Nanostructures for Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy

Radio and chemotherapy are the major clinical treatments for cancer. However, these treatments lack cell specificity and can have severe side effects against healthy cells, especially when used in combination. This project aims at developing a nanocrystal (NC) platform to merge radio and chemotherapy into a single entity that is more specific towards tumor cells.
