Name of Award
Enhancing Cellular Uptake of Magnetic Nanoparticles for Cancer Therapy via Nanoparticle Engineering & Sonoporation
Society of Physics Students Chapter Research Award AND Provost's Research Matching Fund Award
Magnetic induction heating of iron oxide nanoparticles has been proposed as a method for noninvasive cancer treatment without the side effects of chemotherapy and ionizing radiation. At Kettering University we propose to improve the uptake of nanoparticles by cells through the use of nanoparticle engineering and ultrasonic fields.
