Nanoparticles represents a versatile tool for the delivering of therapeutic compounds to the cancer cells. This thesis aims to address the key challenges associated with liver cancer and pancreatic cancer via the use of polymeric nanoparticles and inorganic nanoparticles. This thesis has three main objectives: To deliver sorafenib drug more efficiently to liver cancer cells using polymeric nanoparticles. Second, developing a delivery vehicle to deliver therapeutic genes to liver cancer cells and last to improve pancreatic cancer diagnosis by developing cancer specific diagnostic agent. The outcomes of this thesis has showed improvement in liver cancer treatments and pancreatic tumour diagnosis.
