The Caged Drugs Sing: Killing Cancer with Nano

Wednesday, February 11, 2015 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Paula T. Hammond will deliver a lecture titled "The Caged Drugs Sing: Killing Cancer with Nano," as part of Thinking Out Loud: Deciphering Mysteries of Our World and Beyond series. A "silver bullet" for cancer would be a boon. Unfortunately, malignant cells that can survive long enough to become clinically dangerous are similar enough to their healthy ancestors, that not only do they "look like" healthy cells to the immune system, what is toxic to them is also toxic to healthy cells. Thus, chemotherapy is a delicate balance between killing the cancer and killing the patient.
