General Description

An international collaboration in Spain and the Netherlands will explore photodynamic therapy. The team will develop a “photosensitizer,” which is a molecule that upon activation with light induces cell death. The photosensitizer will be coupled with peptides that bind to neuroendocrine tumor cells. The therapy will then be tested and optimized in laboratory models.
