Tania Betancourt, PhD is a researcher working with QTMM Tetrapods at Star Park. (Pictured here with Steven Squires and David Doderer) http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/unique-university---industry-partnership-to-spur-tetrapod-quantum-dot-commercialization-226107601.html

Her 2007 Dissertation, linked here,
http://books.google.com/books?id=qglb-G7LNm4C&pg=PR1&lpg=PR1&dq=%22Targetable+Biodegradable+Nanoparticles%22+%22Tania+Betancourt%22+dissertation&source=bl&ots=5TcY_SGbGx&sig=Et4fy9LswNRbhAAg4dmIVobKlYs&hl=en&sa=X&ei=U2i_U_XXLMP7oATa0YCoBw&ved=0CB0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22Targetable%20Biodegradable%20Nanoparticles%22%20%22Tania%20Betancourt%22%20dissertation&f=false

is titled "Targetable Biodegradable Nanoparticles for Delivery of Chemotherapeutic and Imaging Agents to Ovarian Cancer" also describes her efforts to deliver Leukemia drug Doxorubicin via nanoparticles. I saw many links online about 2014 work for delivery of Doxorubicin via QDs.

I happened on this readable tutor also, "Designing multifunctional quantum dots for bioimaging, detection, and drug delivery" http://faculty.washington.edu/xgao/Images/Pavel2010Review.pdf

Imaging of treatment of cancer using QDs looks promising.
