A design idea by University of Florida M.D./Ph.D. biomedical engineering student Adam Grippin, Ph.D., is showcased on the cover of ACS Nano.
Grippin worked with graphic arts company AXS Studio to create the design, which is based on his corresponding paper in the Dec. 24 edition.
Led with UF collaborators Duane A. Mitchell, M.D., Ph.D., co-director of the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy; Jon Dobson, Ph.D., professor of biomedical and materials science engineering; and Elias Sayour, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of neurosurgery and pediatrics, the mouse study describes a novel method using nanoparticles to “train” the immune system to fight tumors and enable prediction of which patients are likely to benefit from the treatment.
