From Sci-Fi to Reality: Nanoscale Materials Pave the Way for High Precision Disease TreatmentSeptember 21, 20231 min read
Imagine being able to create something smaller than the size of a single strand of hair that can help treat cancer at the cellular level. Sounds like something out of a science fiction novel or movie, right?
Emily Day, with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Delaware is doing just that.
Her lab innovates nanomaterials (materials with single units measuring between 1 and 100 nanometers) that enable more high precision treatment of cancer, blood disorders and other diseases. She also studies how these nanoparticle interact with with our bodies on both the subcellular-level and whole-organism level.
Day has been recognized with an NSF CAREER Award along with dozens of other awards and grant honors.
She is available to talk about her research and can be contacted by clicking her profile.
