Prakash Lingasamy successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis " Development of multitargeted tumor penetrating peptides" on January 29th, 2021. Opponent of the thesis was professor Angelo Corti from Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele (Milan, Italy). Compared to conventional monospecific tumor homing peptides, multispecific peptides identified in the thesis provide a better accumulation of therapeutic and diagnostic nanoparticles in solid tumors. These preclinical results warrant downstream clinical studies on development of peptide-guided drugs and imaging agents. We wish Prakash good luck in his future career!
