Title Nano-Engineered Drug Combinations for Breast Cancer Treatment.
Publication Date Jun 2012

Personal Author J. Lahann
Abstract We hypothesis that nanoparticles can increase the efficacy of combination therapies for cancer. The project aims to explore nanoparticle- based transport vehicles for effective delivery of two different cancer drugs. In particular, we aim to use two breast cancer drugs, which enhance each other s efficacy and use them as a model drug pair for the development of novel dual- drug nano-therapeutics. The research to date has been focused on extending existing electrohydrodynamic co-jetting technology in the Lahann lab towards the simultaneous release of two independent small molecule drug surrogates.
