Cytoskeletal GTPases play critical roles in cell motility and migration. Prof. Rutka’s lab is now developing a system to target these proteins in glioma. In collaboration with the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the University of Toronto Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, his team is designing a nanoparticle based delivery system as a novel approach to treat gliomas.
