Colombo I, Overchuk M, Chen J, Reilly RM, Zheng G, Lheureux S Methods, 2017 DOI: 10.1016/j.ymeth.2017.07.018 Despite the significant advancement achieved in understanding the molecular mechanisms responsible for cancer transformation and aberrant proliferation, leading to novel targeted cancer therapies, significant effort is still needed to “personalize” cancer treatment. Molecular imagingContinue Reading

Zhang CJ, Valic MS, Chen J, Zheng G STEM Fellowship Journal, 2017 DOI: 10.17975/sfj-2017-007 Porphysome nanoparticles are composed of porphyrin-conjugated lipids. The attachment of the porphyrin moiety to each phospholipid confers novel properties to the liposome-like nanoparticle, allowing it to perform a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The metalContinue Reading
