Emory, GA Tech tackle head, neck, pancreatic cancers with $4.7M grant

Abstract:
Researchers at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology will join forces against head and neck cancers and pancreatic cancer using two grants from the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Nanotechnology Platform Partnerships (CNPP) program. The cooperative five-year grants totaling $4.7 million will be used to develop nanoparticles as diagnostic and therapeutic tools against cancers.

The first grant totals more than $2.3 million over five years and is awarded to Dong Moon Shin, MD, professor of hematology, medical oncology and otolaryngology and director of the Winship Cancer Chemoprevention program, and Mostafa El-Sayed, PhD, Regents professor of chemistry and biochemistry and director of the Laser Dynamics Laboratory at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Their project, titled "Toxicity and efficacy of gold nanoparticle photothermal therapy in cancer," is aimed at head and neck cancer, which develops in the soft tissues of the mouth and throat.
