  • Dr. Margaret Wheatley Receives a W.W. Smith Charitable Trust Research Award for Her Creating a New Paradigm for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Project

    October 02, 2015

    Dr. Margaret Wheatley, John M. Reid Professor in BIOMED, received a 1-year $100K W.W. Smith Charitable Trust Award for the project titled, “Creating a New Paradigm for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment.” The goal of this project is to design "stealth" microbubbles that evade the immune system and deliver gemcitabine from nanoparticles created in situ, directly to the tumor, thereby overcoming problems with dense tissue around tumors.
