Cancer study gets tiny

Abstract:
Joe DeSimone, who has a joint professorship at UNC-CH and N.C. State University, said he hopes his technology to deliver drugs to specific cells will begin clinical trials in about 14 months.

UNC-CH materials science professor Otto Zhou, whose work involves carbon nanotubes, thinks that a company he co-founded will produce new imaging devices for humans in less than two years. He says it has the potential to replace conventional X-rays.

The products of Zhou, DeSimone and other scientists are closer to market in part because of an alliance begun three years ago by the National Cancer Institute. Looking for a way to capitalize on nanotechnology's potential in cancer research, the institute brought together university scientists and private companies from across the country.
