These are nanoparticle vaccines that train your body to combat non-small cell lung tumors. They have been successfully used to treat mice. We wanted to image the nanoparticle vaccines to see how uniform their sizes were. Our goal is to cure lung cancer through smart nanotechnology that allows us to vaccinate patients against cancer.
