Center Members Walk for a Cure for CF

Great Strides for the Center

More than 30 members of the Center for Nanomedicine participated in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s “Great Strides” Walk for a Cure for CF. Led by former student Elizabeth Nance, the team raised $8,000. With the help of the Hanes Lab team, The Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Center ranked third in the country in funds raised for this years’ Great Strides campaign and was awarded Outstanding Care Center Award for their efforts. Thanks for your generous ongoing donations to our team.

Science Translational Medicine featured recent research Science Translational Medicine featured recent research by Elizabeth Nance and Graeme Woodworth on the cover of their Aug 29th issue. Their work shows that much larger than previously expected nanoparticles can penetrate within normal human and rodent brain tissue, but only if densely coated with a bio-inert, hydrophilic polymer, poly(ethylene-glycol) or PEG. Achieving penetration in the brain with larger particles allows for greater flexibility in designing particles that have more uniform, longer-lasting, and effective delivery of drugs within the brain.
