Indian-American scientist wins award for cancer research

Abstract:
An Indian-American scientist has won a USD 4.1 million award given by the US Department of Defence (DoD) for breast cancer research.

His recent work brought together cancer biology, pharmacology and engineering to create an anti-cancer drug delivery device dubbed the nanocell. This technology has the potential to eliminate the systemic toxicity caused by chemotherapy by directing drugs to act only where they are needed. The concept is now being commercialised by Tempo Pharmaceuticals, which is a MIT start-up.
