Targeted Layer-by-layer Nanoparticles for Selective Delivery to Brain Tumors

Joelle is a Clinical Fellow in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Boston Children’s/Dana-Farber Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, Harvard Medical School. She joined the Hammond lab in 2017 as a postdoctoral researcher focused on improving drug delivery for pediatric brain tumors. She is using targeted layer-by-layer nanoparticles to improve delivery of of novel therapeutic combinations through the blood-brain-barrier and preferentially into tumor cells in order to make more effective, less toxic therapies.
