An engineering approach to reduce the pain of chemotherapy

Purdue University researchers are part of a multidisciplinary team working to better predict which patients will have side effects from specific chemotherapy drugs and develop therapeutic cures. Researchers include Parul Verma, a PhD candidate in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering, and Dr. Doraiswami Ramkrishna, the Harry Creighton Peffer Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering. "This is really about examining the mechanisms of neuropathy and other side effects and what happens to the neurons in the body due to chemotherapy," Verma said. "Then, we can design drugs to treat cancer without causing the side effects or at least reduce the number or severity of side effects."
