WIREs Nanomed Nanobiotechnol
Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology Graduate Seminar
This is an evolving collection of articles that can be used in a graduate classroom or seminar setting. They offer ideal entry points for students or researchers less familiar with the fields that are seeking introductory orientation to nanomedicine and nanobiotechnology.
In the Spotlight
works at the interface of biotechnology and materials science. His lab is researching many topics, such as investigating the mechanism of release from polymeric delivery systems with concomitant microstructural analysis and mathematical modeling; studying applications of these systems including the development of effective long-term delivery systems for insulin, anti-cancer drugs, growth factors, gene therapy agents and vaccines; developing controlled release systems that can be magnetically, ultrasonically, or enzymatically triggered to increase release rates; synthesizing new biodegradable polymeric delivery systems which will ultimately be absorbed by the body; creating new approaches for delivering drugs such as proteins and genes across complex barriers such as the blood-brain barrier, the intestine, the lung and the skin; stem cell research including controlling growth and differentiation; and creating new biomaterials with shape memory or surface switching properties.Learn More
