KWF funding for preclinical validation of supramolecular hydrogel for continuous local intraperitoneal chemotherapy

Together with Maastricht UMC (prof. Nicole Bouvy) and Catherina Cancer Institute (prof. Ignace de Hingh), researchers from TU/e (prof. Patrica Dankers) were awarded a KWF research grant for the development of a new strategy to improve intraperitoneal chemotherapy for patients with peritoneal cancer. This funding gives the opportunity to start preclinical evaluation of an innovative supramolecular hydrogel that enables continuous local intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
