Dartmouth College researchers are getting $12.8 million to develop ways to kill breast and ovarian cancer cells without harming the rest of the body.

The National Cancer Institute has awarded the money to Dartmouth Medical School, Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center for research involving the destruction of malignant tumors with magnetic nanoparticles.

Dartmouth officials say the grant highlights the school's strength in bringing together different academic disciplines.

In awarding the five-year grant, National Cancer Institute reviewers cited the school's outstanding research team and long-standing culture of collaboration.
