Learn more about the work that Professor Cima’s lab is doing to create tiny nanosensors that are chemically sensitive to different molecules – and how they hope these sensors can be used to help determine proper dosage for chemotherapy.
KI Research Animations: Sensing Cancer
How can doctors more quickly and effectively determine whether a new treatment is working for a cancer patient or not? This video traces the work of the Cima lab at the KI to overcome this problem with a tiny implantable sensor. The video currently appears in the interactive exhibits of the KI Public Galleries.
