This woman right here !! This woman is the fucking truth ! 

Dr. Green's passion for cancer research was ignited when she lost both her aunt and uncle to cancer. Determined to find a solution, she pursued a career in science and earned her bachelor's degree in physics from Alabama A&M University. She then went on to complete her master's and doctoral degrees in physics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

During her graduate studies, Dr. Green developed a novel cancer treatment method using laser-activated nanoparticles. This innovative approach involves injecting nanoparticles into cancer cells and then using laser light to activate the nanoparticles, which selectively destroy the cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue. Her research has shown promising results in preclinical studies and has the potential to revolutionize cancer treatment.

In addition to her groundbreaking research, Dr. Green is a passionate advocate for cancer awareness and education, particularly within underserved communities. She believes that everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic background, should have access to the latest advancements in cancer treatment and care. Dr. Green actively engages in community outreach programs, speaking engagements, and mentorship initiatives to inspire and empower young people, especially girls and minorities, to pursue careers in science and medicine.

Dr. Green's work has garnered recognition and numerous accolades. She was awarded a $1.1 million grant from the Veterans Affairs Historically Black Colleges and Universities Research Scientist Training Program, which supported her research on cancer treatment. In 2016, she was also awarded a $1.1 million grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs to further develop her laser-activated nanoparticle therapy.

Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green's dedication to cancer research and her innovative approach to cancer treatment have the potential to transform the field of oncology. Her advocacy for cancer awareness and education, particularly within underserved communities, is helping to bridge the gap in healthcare disparities. Dr. Green's work serves as an inspiration to aspiring scientists and underscores the importance of diversity and inclusion in scientific research and medical advancements.
