Project 1: Shape Memory Biomaterials: Probes for Cellular Response to Microenvironment Changes.

Investigator: Valerie Ashby The importance of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in oncogenesis has been shown. While studies utilizing static micro and nano-arrays have provided a great deal of valuable information,…

Project 2: Nanobubbles as Delivery Agents for Photodynamic Therapy.

Investigator: Malcolm D. E. Forbes We will make precise and expedient delivery to treatment areas of high concentrations of the three components required for photodynamic therapy (PDT): a sensitizer, molecular…

Project 3: 3D microrheology in breast cancer co-cultures by sensing plasmonic nanorods with optical coherence tomography.

Investigator: Amy L. Oldenburg We hypothesize that viscoelastic tissue properties are highly heterogeneous in the vicinity of mammary ducts, and that new insight into breast cancer can be obtained with…
