O mém projektu

Chemotherapy is the most common treatment of cancer, but has limited effect and many side effects. Therefore, there is a great need to find additional treatment. In this project, I will investigate the possibility of combinational therapy employing silencing and drug encapsulated into natural protein nanocarrier apoferritin to eliminate the negative side-effects of non-targeted therapy.
