The grant of €195.420 was rewarded for the project entitled "Aptamer-based multivalent cancer therapeutics: the road to efficient breast cancer detection and treatment" was awarded to dr Paul Span (Radiation Oncology, RadboudUMC), dr Hans Heus and prof. Alan Rowan (Biophysical Chemistry and Molecular Materials, IMM, Radboud University). The goal of the project is to develop a novel strategy for early diagnosis and effective treatment of breast cancer using biomimetic polymers, equipped with multiple aptamers that target cancer cells through multivalent interactions.
