    Nanomedicine Program Creates Opportunities for Undergraduates

    When it comes to the future of medicine, small is indeed beautiful. Working at the nanoscale, tens of thousands of researchers are in a race to develop tiny nanoparticles, nanodevices and nanopatterned surfaces for medical applications. Their goals are both comprehensive and ambitious. They are hoping to create drugs that stop disease processes at the

    Determining meaningful variability among cells is a common goal of researchers in virtually every area of medical research. For instance, investigators who can pinpoint significant differences among tumor cells have the basis for explaining why some cells respond to a medication and others don’t. Over the last decade, Associate Professor Kevin Janes has been working
