WORCESTER, Mass. - May 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Nemucore Medical Innovations, Inc. (NMI), a privately-held biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development and commercialization of targeted nanomedicines for the treatment of multidrug resistant cancers, announced today that Worcester Polytechnic Institute students Joseph Cacaccio and Eileen Wrabel won WPI’s Provost Award in Biochemistry for their work at NMI.

WPI's Provost Award is granted to one team from each academic major for the research and presentation of their Major Qualifying Project (MQP). Joseph and Eileen’s project was entitled “Development and Analysis of a Novel Nanotherapeutic for the Treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme.” The team researched and tested potential treatment and targeting options for nanotherapeutics at Nemucore, several options of which are currently undergoing further experimentation.

“We are very proud of Joseph and Eileen for their work on glioblastoma research and for earning such a prestigious award,” explained NMI’s CEO, Timothy Coleman. "Our goal of hosting MQP students from WPI is to teach them think critically and meet the high quality standards of commercial research and development. Joseph and Eileen’s reception of WPI’s Provost Award displays the high standards that these students are able to reach. We are very proud of their work and are excited to work with additional local students in the upcoming school year."

Nemucore is currently continuing Joseph and Eileen’s research and will be hosting two more MQP teams to preform research on glioblastoma and multidrug resistant ovarian cancer therapies this coming school year.
