Hadiyah-Nicole Green

Hadiyah-Nicole Green is an American medical physicist known for her development of a novel cancer treatment using laser-activated nanoparticles.[1][2] She is one of 66 black women to earn a Ph.D. in physics in the United States between 1973 and 2012, compared to 22,172 white men.[3] Green is also the second black woman and the fourth black person ever to earn a doctoral degree in physics from the University of Alabama Birmingham.[4]

Early life and education
Green was orphaned at a young age and raised by her aunt and uncle in St. Louis, Missouri.[5] She attended Alabama A&M University, where she studied physics and earned her bachelor's degree in physics and optics in 2003.[1][2][6] Her post-graduate studies were at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, where she earned a master's degree and Ph.D. in physics, in 2009 and 2012 respectively, and was also voted Homecoming Queen.[7] She began her pioneering nanoparticle research there.[1][2][6]

Career and research
While conducting her doctoral research, Green developed a method to insert nanoparticles into cancer cells but not healthy cells, allowing them to be destroyed by lasers. She then tested this treatment in animal models.[8]

She is currently a professor at Tuskegee University, where she is continuing her research.[7] Green dedicates much of her spare time to speaking to and mentoring young black students.[1][2][6]
