Based on progress to date, Dr. Federman was awarded a new grant in 2012 to fund an additional two years of this Scholar award. We already have many powerful drugs to treat cancer but lack the means to deliver them directly to the intended targets (cancer cells), and as a result, cancer patients suffer significant side effects. Dr. Federman tests new ways of delivering anti-cancer treatments more directly using nanoparticles programmed to recognize particular cancer cells.
