Enumerating Rare Cells Labeled with Fluorescent Nanoparticles
NU IGERT Nanomedicine Program on YouTube!
Take a tour with three former IGERT trainees, Brian Plouffe, Tatyana Chernenko and Yogesh Patel, and see for yourself some of the outstanding research that is done in the IGERT Nanomedicine program at Northeastern.
IGERT Nanomedicine Science and Technology is a new integrated doctoral
education program in the emerging field of Nanomedicine, created with
support from the National Cancer Institute and the National Science
Foundation. The program aims to educate the next generation of scientists
and technologists with the requisite skill sets to address scientific
and engineering challenges, with the necessary business, ethical and
global perspectives that will be needed in the rapidly emerging area of
applying nanotechnology to human health.
The program began at Northeastern University in 2005 with an NSF IGERT grant funded through the National Cancer Institute. The success of the program has since then led to an NSF funded IGERT renewal grant for the period 2010-2015 with new partners, Tuskegee University, The University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez and collaborators at hospitals affiliated with Harvard Medical School.
The program combines the interdisciplinary expertise of world-renowned faculty members in 11 departments at 3 Universities, collaborating with researchers at teaching hospitals and industry. Students enrolled in a Ph.D. program in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical/Industrial Engineering, Electrical/Computer Engineering, or Pharmaceutical Sciences (Northeastern University), Materials Science and Engineering or Integrative Biosciences (Tuskegee University), Applied Chemistry or Chemical Engineering (UPRM) may apply to the IGERT interdisciplinary program. The IGERT fellow will graduate with a Ph.D. degree in their core subject with specialization in Nanomedicine Science and Technology.
