The OVPR's (Office of the Vice President for Research) research and innovation blog, Inquiry, highlighted our transdisciplinary MnDRIVE project on DNA nanotechnology: Tiny technology to deliver big disease treatments.
Aadarsh, the high school student that worked with Rachel over the summer, presented his project "Increasing Cancer-Specific Drug Delivery using Targeted Liposomes" at the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair. His poster was selected as a finalist for the International Science & Engineering Fair (to be held in Pittsburgh in May), and the MN State Science Fair (to be held in March). His research paper was awarded 3rd place out of 174 papers. Congratulations Aadarsh, we are proud of your achievement!
