Layer-by-Layer Nanoparticles for Targeting Minimal Residual Disease 

Minimal residual disease refers to the small fraction of remaining cancer cells present in the body after cancer treatment and is the leading cause of relapse. Layer-by-layer nanoparticle assembly can be used as a method of encapsulating and delivering therapeutics to these cells. My research aims to design the outer layer of these nanoparticles, enhancing targeting effects to ovarian cancer cells.
