Expanding the Cancer-Fighting Arsenal

Field of Science: Medicine
Abstract: A team of undergraduate physical, biological, and computational chemists are researching enediynes which are commonly called biological warheads since they can split tumors' DNA backbones. Enedyne can cause the death of cancerous cells but the challenge is making it unreactive under the normal pH of a healthy cell at the same time.
