Dr. Sanku Mallik and Dr. Bin Guo in Pharmaceutical Sciences have received a National Institutes of Health grant award to study ways to use polymer spheres to deliver anticancer drugs to combat prostate cancer. The tiny spheres are known as nanocarriers. Researchers are looking at whether they can increase the rate at which the nanocarriers release cancer-fighting drugs to get all of the cancer cells and potentially improve the efficacy of traditional chemotherapy. The five-year $1.2 million grant was awarded by the National Institutes of Health.
