Postdoctoral fellow wins prestigious Polanyi Prize: Cited for using nanotechnology in cancer research

Abstract:
A U of T postdoctoral researcher was honoured Nov. 27 with the 2007 Polanyi Prize, a $20,000 early-career prize given by the Ontario government to researchers planning to continue their postdoctoral studies at universities in Ontario.

Naomi Matsurra of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre — one of U of T's affiliated teaching hospitals — was one of five winners announced during an event at Massey College. She was cited for developing new ways to use nanotechnology in cancer diagnosis and therapy and in detecting, tracking and treating cancer on a cellular level. Currently a postdoctoral fellow, Matsurra earned her PhD in materials science and engineering at U of T.
