UCLA to Use Nanotechnology to Study Cancer With $1.5 Million Grant

Abstract:
UCLA researchers have received a $1.5 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation for a new interdisciplinary program that will use nanotechnology to understand the origins of the majority of solid tumor cancers. "The W.M. Keck Epithelial Cell Cancer Biology Program will help UCLA scientists better understand the complex nature of tumors that share an epithelial cell origin such as breast, prostate, lung, bladder and pancreatic cancer, and facilitate the development of new ways to treat them," said Leonard Rome, principal investigator for the program.
