Name of Award

Enhancing Cellular Uptake of Magnetic Nanoparticles for Cancer Therapy via Nanoparticle Engineering & Sonoporation

Date Awarded


Granting Organization

Society of Physics Students Chapter Research Award AND Provost's Research Matching Fund Award

Project Description

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.
