Clinical Interest(s):
Children with bone and soft tissue sarcomas

Scientific Interest(s):

Dr. Noah Federman’s main scientific interest has been in the field of nanotechnology: developing nanoparticles to specifically target sarcomas and deliver cytotoxic chemotherapy. This novel research may lead to new breakthroughs in targeted therapies for cancer. As a member and institutional principle investigator for the Sarcoma Alliance Research Through Collaboration (SARC), Federman leads an experienced pediatric sarcoma clinical research team with an emphasis towards studying promising new agents in children with very aggressive and often fatal metastatic and refractory bone and soft tissue cancers.
