Brittany's Research Success

Congratulations to Brittany for receiving a Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award from Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU)! This research award will fund her project “A novel core-shell microparticle design for sustained release antitumorigenic activity” which will test a proof-of-concept nanoparticle design that hopefully elicits synthetic lethality in endometrial cancer cells. Brittany hopes that the preliminary data collected through this project will lead to a larger grant to investigate materials from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and a translational grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
