Early Cancer Detection is Treatment of the Future

Abstract:
University of Missouri-Columbia experts from several fields, including physics and radiology, are working together to use ultra tiny nanoparticles to detect and treat cancer at the molecular level. The researchers involved with this project say early detection of all types of cancer is the primary motivation for this research.

“The nanoparticles are safe to handle and safe to administer, so this could speed the process of approval.” said Kattesh Katti, professor of radiology and biomedical physics. “This research looks very promising.
