Targeted Layer-by-layer Nanoparticles for Pediatric Brain Tumor Therapeutic Delivery

Layer-by-layer nanoparticles provide the potential of traveling across the blood-brain-barrier to deliver novel therapeutic combinations to brain tumor cells to create effective, less toxic therapies. My research aims to apply this technology to pediatric neuro-oncology, where dosage-related neurotoxicity is a key barrier to current treatments.
