Tiny particles stand to make a big impact on cancer research at UCF.

The NanoScience Technology Center, in collaboration with the Institute for Simulation and Training at UCF, hosted a workshop on Oct. 11 that studied data collection, analysis and modeling of nanoparticles and cell interactions for cancer research. These studies could lead to significant advances in research for the disease, specifically in creating alternatives to harsh treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.

“The idea was to bring different people together and really try to introduce each other to our different fields,” Laurene Tetard, an assistant professor at the UCF NanoScience Technology Center, said. “We wanted to see if we could start a new project in which we can overlap the benefits from our own experiences and create new avenues of research.”
