Abstract:
Medical Nanotechnologies ("MedNanotech"), based in Richardson, Texas, announced today the award of a Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase 1 grant from the National Science Foundation.

Medical Nanotechnologies, Inc., awarded Phase 1 Small Business Technology Transfer Grant from the National Science Foundation

Richardson, TX | Posted on July 14th, 2010

The award will help fund studies between the company and its collaborators at the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UT Southwestern). The project focuses on the use and application of carbon nanotubes combined with near infrared (near IR) light to photo-thermally ablate cancer cells.

"The combination of nanotechnology with medicine (nanomedicine) is creating new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other diseases", said Dr. Rockford Draper, a Principal Scientist at MedNanotech and Professor in the Departments of Molecular & Cell Biology and Chemistry at UT Dallas. "The phase I grant award by the National Science Foundation will support basic studies on the application of carbon nanotubes to the noninvasive destruction of tumor cells".

Draper is the lead investigator on the grant. He will collaborate with Dr. Ellen Vitetta and her group in the Cancer Immunobiology Center (CIC) at UT Southwestern. Vitetta is the Director of CIC and Professor of Immunology and Microbiology. Draper and Vitetta have been working together for the past several years.
