We hypothesis that nanoparticles can increase the efficacy of combination therapies for cancer. The project aims to explore nanoparticle-based transport vehicles for effective delivery of two different cancer drugs. In particular, we aim to use two breast cancer drugs, which enhance each other s efficacy and use them as a model drug pair for the development of novel dual-drug nano-therapeutics. The research to date has been focused on extending existing electrohydrodynamic co-jetting technology in the Lahann lab towards the simultaneous release of two independent small molecule drug surrogates.
