Congrats to MIT student Geoffrey von Maltzahn!
Congrats to MIT student Geoffrey von Maltzahn! He's a 28-year-old Ph.D. candidate in the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) and he did his undergrad at MIT (Course 10). He received the prestigious $30,000 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize for his research in the area of cancer therapy and nanomedicine: a new class of cancer therapeutics and a new paradigm for enhancing drug delivery to tumors. Nanotechnology is such an exciting area right now, especially in the area of oncology and drug delivery. I envy those who are devoting their lives to biologic research and applying innovations in technology to improve healthcare.
