Pansare and Prud'homme Place in the Keller Center's 6th Annual Innovation Forum
Third-year Ph.D. student Vikram Pansare and his advisor, Professor Bob Prud’homme, took home Third Place (and $5000 in flexible research funding) at Princeton’s 6th Annual Innovation Forum, held on April 7. Sponsored by the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, the purpose of the Innovation Forum is to showcase Princeton research that offers the potential to be commercialized. Pansare’s three-minute “elevator pitch” on “Multifunctional Targeted Imaging Nanoparticles”, captured in this video, describes a flexible, personalized, cost-effective way to produce nanoparticles that can be targeted to specific diseases such as cancer.
