PharmaTell seminar: Advanced drug delivery for targeted tumor therapy: Role of definition at the nanoscale Event as iCalendar

12 February 2013

10 - 11am

Venue: Seminar Room 503-020, Building 503, 85 Park Road, Grafton

Advances in materials sciences and nanotechnology have enabled the fabrication of polymers with precise sequences and lengths, and nanoconstructs with defined shapes, dimensions and size distribution. This talk will summarize efforts in designing silk-elastinlike recombinant polymers for adenoviral gene delivery and exploring gold nanorods for enhancement of macromolecular drug delivery to solid tumors.

Hamid Ghandehari is a Professor at the Departments of Pharmaceutics and Bioengineering, Director of Utah Center for Nanomedicine and Editor in Chief of Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews. He received his BS in Pharmacy and PhD in Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Utah.
