Dr Ngwa's work integrates research, clinical service, and teaching in Radiation Oncology, with current focus on developing smart biomaterials (Tiny drones to Target cancer) designed to boost local and metastatic tumor cell kill with minimal collateral damage or side effects. He leads a cross-disciplinary research group at the interface of radiotherapy, immunotherapy and biomaterials with a dedicated commitment to develop cures for cancer, and prevent cancer recurrence. The Award-winning drone technology is adaptable to delivering different drug payloads precisely to disease sites or targets with minimal systemic distribution and associated toxicities. Dr Ngwa is also the Director of Global Health Catalyst: a transformative initiative for catalyzing high impact international collaborations to eliminate global health disparities in cancer and related diseases. This cutting-edge work is helping shape the emerging field of global radiation oncology and has lead to many collaborations in global oncology research, education and care involving USA and African Institutions.
