Delta Soror, Hadiyah-Nicole Green, PhD, is changing the way cancer is treated.
See how YOU can help!
"Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green is a multidisciplinary physicist who specializes in targeted cancer therapeutics, using laser-activated nanoparticles and immunotherapies to develop biomarker-specific platforms to target, image, and treat malignant tumors.
Dr. Green was recently awarded a $1.1 million HBCU RSTP Career Development Award from the VA Office of Research and Development. The grant will support the further development of four patent-pending technologies including a 3-in-1 system for early detection, imaging, targeting, and selective treatment of head and neck cancer and a 10-minute laser-activated nanoparticle treatment that induces ~100% tumor regression.
Her goal is to demonstrate the efficacy of these treatments in a variety of cancer models including in colorectal, ovarian, cervical, breast, brain, pancreatic, bladder, skin and prostate cancers".
"Dr. Green completed her B.S. degree in Physics from Alabama A&M University. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). She gained extensive molecular, cellular, and animal research experiences in the Head and Neck Cancer Research Program at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center and in the Department of Pathology.
After serving two years at Tuskegee University, Dr. Green established The Ora Lee Smith Cancer Research Foundation and joined Morehouse School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology to pursue her dream to help people with her cancer treatments".

"During the pageant, announcers called her 'the most disciplined contestant this year.' Her background added context to her much-applauded answer during the Q&A portion of the evening, as her question covered women in combat"- Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/06/05/miss-dc-deshauna-barber-wins-the-miss-usa-pageant/)
