Recent developments in nanotechnology has provided new tools for cancer therapy and diagnosis. Among other nanomaterial systems, gold nanoparticles are being used as radiation dose enhancers and anticancer drug carriers. Our studies show that size, shape, and surface properties of NPs can play a major role in their interaction with tumor cells. We have a developed a comprehensive research platform which includes monolayer cell models, multilayer cell models (tissue like models), and in vivo animal models to test the therapeutic efficacy of gold mediated sensitization. It is important to test Recent developments in nanotechnology has provided new tools for cancer therapy and diagnosis.
