FORA.tv Speaker - Hadiyah-Nicole Green
Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green is a multi-disciplinary physicist who specializes in targeted cancer therapeutics, using laser-activated nanoparticles and immunotherapies to develop biomarker-specific platforms to target, image, and treat malignant tumors. Dr. Green was recently awarded a $1.1 million HBCU RSTP Career Development Award from the VA Office of Research and Development. The grant will support the further development of four patent-pending technologies including a 3-in-1 system for early detection, imaging, targeting, and selective treatment of head and neck cancer and a 10-minute laser-activated nanoparticle treatment that induces ~100% tumor regression. Her goal is to demonstrate the efficacy of these treatments in a variety of cancer models including in colorectal, ovarian, cervical, breast, brain, pancreatic, bladder, skin and prostate cancers.
