Since his arrival on campus in 2004, molecular biologist and Tech Professor John McDonald has been hard at work developing new solutions and strategies for targeting and treating cancer. Some of his latest research concerns the use of nanoparticles to seek out and deliver treatments to ovarian cancer cells without damaging the body’s healthy cells. Designing this technology has required collaboration between the McDonald Lab in the School of Biology and Andrew Lyon’s lab in the School of Chemistry.
