Ljubimova Lab

Personal Statement

In addition to leading the Ljubimova Laboratory, I am the director of the Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery research area for drug delivery and nanomedicine in the Neurosurgery Department at Cedars-Sinai. My main interests are in differential cancer genomic and proteomic signatures as a tool for finding novel, early markers of cancer growth, and in developing and designing new nanomedicine drugs against these and other tumor targets."
