Multiresponsive Nanogels for the Delivery of Small Interfering RNA and Advanced Protein Therapeutic Agents for Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases

2017-04-21

Professor Nicholas A. Peppas will deliver a speech entitled in “Multiresponsive Nanogels for the Delivery of Small Interfering RNA and Advanced Protein Therapeutic Agents for Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases”.

 

Time: 15:30-16:30, April 21, 2017;

Venue: the PUMC’s Auditorium.

 

Professor Nicholas A. Peppas is the Cockrell Family Regents Chaired Professor in the Departments of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering of the Cockrell School of Engineering, the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care of the Dell Medical School, and the Division of Pharmaceutics of the College of Pharmacy. He is also the Director of the Institute of Biomaterials, Drug Delivery and Regenerative Medicine of the University of Texas at Austin. 

 

Professor Nicholas A. Peppas’s work in biomaterials, biopolymer physics, protein and therapeutic agent delivery and bionanotechnology has made seminal contributions to the dynamic behavior of biomacromolecules in complex biological environments with emphasis on solute (drug/protein) transport through three-dimensional macromolecular networks. Over the past 40 years he has set the fundamentals and rational design of drug delivery systems and developed models of drug and protein diffusion in controlled release devices and biological tissues.
