Nanotechnology is a compelling new drug delivery method in oncology where nanoparticles are engineered to target therapeutics to kill cancer. Find out more in Dr. Venkata Yenugonda’s review article in the March 2019 issue International Journal of Nanomedicine.
Dr. Yenugonda is driven by his desire to better mankind by developing safe, effective and affordable drugs for difficult diseases that can be easily accessed by everyone. Utilizes a unique, two-pronged approach, he combines drug discovery tools and nanotechnology tools to circumvent existing clinical problems. Learn more.
Dr. Sarah McEwen’s determination to make a difference bridges the gap between academic research and the underserved populations in the community. Her research and clinical work implement physical and cognitive interventions simultaneously during the earliest phases of illness with the possibility of preventing cognitive decline. Read more.
Imagine using electricity to non-invasively treat and cure brain cancer. Or stroke. Or Parkinson’s. Or an aneurysm. Or Alzheimer’s, depression, concussion. Dr. Santosh Kesari is a physician scientist who sees the possibilities in the world of alternating electric field therapy.
Thanks to the ever-increasing availability of medical information available online and capabilities for long distance tele-health consultations, patients have many options to undergo multidisciplinary treatment for their conditions with experts worldwide. Find out if it is safe for patients with brain tumors to fly.
Featured at the SoCal Biomedical Conference in September 2017, Drs. Chester Griffiths and Santosh Kesari highlight Pacific Neuroscience Institute’s unique collaborative approach to research and patient care.
When a person suffers a stroke, millions of brain nerve cells die often resulting in motor disabilities such as paralysis and speech difficulties. What if researchers could challenge the brain to recover? That’s what PNI researchers are doing for patients up to 7 1/2 years after their attack.
Neurosciences and Neurotherapeutics Brain-based disorders are among the most challenging conditions to treat. However, the neurosciences faculty at Pacific Neuroscience Institute and the John Wayne[ Read More ]
Precision medicine tailors treatment to the patient’s unique biological makeup. Dr. Santosh Kesari uses genetic profiling & targeted treatment healing one person at a time.
With an increasing number of individuals surviving a cancer diagnosis, one of the most common concerns raised by cancer survivors is cognitive dysfunction, frequently referred to as “chemobrain”.
