Cancer Nanomedicine Laboratory

We are inventing novel technologies to treat advanced cancers and to detect disease at early stages. We are a young bioengineering laboratory that develops new nanotechnologies, including nanomedicines—tiny particles that target drugs to tumor sites, and nanosensors—tiny devices that detect markers of disease.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
