Nelson Mandela University shared an inspiring post about researcher Itumeleng Zosela. Zosela graduated from the University on 14 December with her MSc in Nanoscience Cum Laude. She has introduced an innovative treatment that is toxic to colon cancer cells only.
Other treatments that currently exist, unfortunately, have grave aftereffects on normal cells and not only the cancer cells of the colon. Zosela has already registered for a PhD in Physiology with her focus being on Nanoscience.
The same nanoparticles will be tested on tumour cells in humans as well as on an animal model in order to see if the effects will be the same. The University's post about Zosela gained over 430 likes on Facebook.
