Nanomedicine: the new way to detect and treat cancer?


Regular cancer treatment focuses on killing the cancer cells through large doses of medicine, but it also kills other cells in the body and causes significant side effects and potential long-term effects. Join UCalgary researcher David Cramb – who looks at using nanoparticles to deliver the drugs solely to the tumor in much smaller, more effective quantities – to learn more about the potential breakthroughs that can be made possible through nanomedicine both in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer.
