On 11th September 2015, Ms. Haruka Iki, Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology, wins a Molecular Biosystems Award. This award was given to a significant poster presenter at the 9th Bio-related chemistry symposium.
< About awarded research >
In cancer medications, it is important to specifically deliver the medicine to tumor sites. It was previously found that poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (PMPC), zwitterionic polymer, was selectively accumulated in tumor. In this research, we further evaluated the polymer structure–tumor accumulation relationship to reveal important physicochemical factors for efficient tumor accumulation of zwitterionic polymers.

It is a great pleasure to receive this Molecular Biosystems poster award. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Prof. Shinsuke Sando, and also to our lab members and collaborators for all of their support.
