Dr. You-Yeon Won awarded Trask Innovation funding for advanced tumor research

Davidson School of Chemical Engineering Professor You-Yeon Won was recently awarded $37,149 from the Purdue Trask Innovation Fund for development of a radiation-controlled drug-release formulation that is shown to improve the treatment of locally advanced head and neck tumors more effectively for some patients. More than 60,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with these cancers annually. The formulation allows toxicity and side effects associated with chemo-radiation to be minimized by encapsulating the drug with radiation-degradable capsules and injecting this formation into the patient's tumor before normal radiation. Dr. Won's research is being conducted in collaboration with the Indiana University School of Medicine.
