Ruthenium Based Anti-Cancer Agents

Burgert Blom, PhD, assistant professor of inorganic chemistry and catalysis

Cancer is a deadly disease, which affects the lives of millions of people worldwide. At the Maastricht Science
Programme (MSP) they use research-based learning (RBL) extensively for undergraduate students within their
programme. Not only has this proven to be an exceptional didactic tool for teaching chemistry research, but it has also produced exciting publishable research work in the context of novel anti-cancer agents based on ruthenium.
