Title: Synergetic Approaches in Molecular and Nanoscale Therapeutics and Delivery Systems
In this presentation, Dr. Rege will give an overview of the recent developments in our laboratory on the discovery and delivery of therapeutics for cancer disease. In the first part, advances in understanding the role of intracellular trafficking in polymer mediated transgene delivery will be highlighted. This will be followed by a brief discussion on the use of synergistic strategies for enhancing gold nanorod-induced hyperthermic ablation of cancer cells. Finally, results on parallel screening and identification of new combination chemotherapeutic treatments will be discussed.
Thank you and if you have questions please contact Vanessa Baack! And don’t forget, coffee will be served!
