Science and technology together with nature to battle cancer
The UB Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS)
is collaborating with the University of the West Indies on a way to
identify indigenous compounds with anticancer properties. The
center will focus on nanomedicine approaches that maximize
therapeutic benefit and minimize drug toxicity.
Its multidisciplinary program will focus on innovative
formulations and tissue-targeted nanocarrier systems. Researchers
will draw from the fields of biochemistry, analytical chemistry,
proteomics, bioengineering, nanotechnology and pharmaceutical
sciences as they work to develop, patent and commercialize cancer
diagnostics and therapeutics.
