Using Nanotechnology to Target Aggressive Cancers
Background: Nanotechnology is emerging as a promising tool to target cancer cells. Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) are preferentially taken up by cancer cells when injected into the blood stream and their safety has been demonstrated in human clinical trials. WSU researchers have designed a unique nanoparticle conjugate that combines a GNP with a small m...

An In Vitro Model System for Studying Development of Human Preneoplastic Breast Disease
This technology is a novel model/assay system that recapitulates in vitro the in vivo processes that lead to breast cancer development and progression from preneoplastic tissue. This model is the first that demonstrates in vitro the de novo development and neoplastic conversion of functional alveolar units. Background & Unmet Need: Although ...
