MBP scientist Dr. Gang Zheng was recently featured on UHN’s ‘Behind the Breakthrough’, a 'podcast about the people behind the world-leading research at UHN'.

In this episode, Dr. Zheng discusses his 'development of a unique nontoxic nanoparticle, a porphysome, made by combining lipid or fat particles with a compound derived from pacific algae. This so-called Swiss army knife of nanoparticles has the potential to significantly improve the way cancers are detected and treated, from targeted drug delivery to ablation of the tumour from within using light.’
