    The Bridge Project, a collaboration between DF/HCC and the Koch Institute, is designed to bring bioengineering, advanced cancer science, and clinical oncology together to solve today’s most challenging problems in cancer research and care

    DF/HCC and Northeastern University work together to offer training opportunities in cancer nanomedicine

    August 19, 2014

    Northeastern University has received a five-year, $1.15 million grant from the National Institute of Health’s National Cancer Institute to train the next generation of cancer nanomedicine scientists and clinicians through a unique experiential learning program. 

    The grant aligns with Northeastern’s focus on discovering solutions to global challenges in health, one of the university’s three programmatic pillars. 

    “Nanotechnology is leading to breakthroughs in diagnosis and therapy of many diseases, particularly cancer, leading to the new discipline of cancer nanomedicine,” said principal investigator Srinivas Sridhar, Northeastern’s Arts and Science Distinguished Professor of Physics, Bioengineering, and Chemical Engineering, and the director of the university’s IGERT Nanomedicine Science and Technology program
