U.N. awards Yale researcher nanotech grant

Abstract:
A Yale University researcher has won a $40,000 grant from the United Nations to study nanoparticles designed to fight tumor growth.

The United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in partnership with L'Oreal, last month awarded post-doctoral biomedical engineering fellow Kim Woodrow the grant for her work to develop biodegradable nanoparticles designed to target cells in blood vessels, delivering therapeutics to fight tumor growth.
