Developing rapid cancer nano sensors

MIT News - Denis Paiste | Materials Processing Center - May 11, 2017

Summer Scholar Kaila Holloway experiments with tiny chemical sensors that can indicate tumor changes.

Chemicals like nitric oxide and hydrogen peroxide can promote cancer growth. MPC-CMSE Summer Scholar Kaila Holloway is working in the lab of Michael S. Strano, Carbon P. Dubbs Professor in Chemical Engineering at MIT, to develop tiny chemical sensors to detect their concentrations near tumors in the body.
