The next episode of High-Tech Sunday features Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green, a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) pioneer who is introducing the world to the next generation of cancer treatments and affordable healthcare through her expertise in physics, nanomedicine, immunotherapy, and precision medicine. In this podcast, Dr. Green talks about how she developed a revolutionary cancer treatment that uses lasers and nanotechnology to eliminate cancer in mice after one 10-minute treatment in just 15 days with no observable side effects.

Join us on Sunday, Nov. 29 at 3 PM EST for episode #16 of High-Tech Sunday.

The one-hour podcasts are streamed every Sunday. They can be accessed through Facebook, YouTube, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Podbean, and Spotify.

Currently, Dr. Green serves as the director of the NanoBioPhotonics and Targeted Cancer Therapeutics Laboratory and as an assistant professor at Morehouse School of Medicine in the Department of Surgery. She founded a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Ora Lee Smith Cancer Research Foundation (OraLee.org), to raise the funding for human clinical trials and ensure that this treatment can be made affordable for everyone. Dr. Green has intertwined her life’s purpose into the mission of the organization: to change the way cancer is treated and reduce the suffering of cancer patients by providing a treatment that is accessible, affordable, and effective.

Additionally, Dr. Green has developed a 4-in-1 platform for early detection, imaging, targeting, and selective treatment of cancer. Dr. Green’s ultimate goal is to translate these treatments out of the laboratory into humans for a variety of cancer models, including those in head and neck, breast, colorectal, brain, lung, cervical, pancreatic, anal, skin, and prostate cancers. In all, this endeavor could lead to saving some of the 8.8 million people who die each year from cancer worldwide.
