The Daniel Heller Lab

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.
