Designing Nanobiomaterials for Cancer Therapeutic Delivery at Next Clarkson University Science Cafe

"Designing Nanobiomaterials for Cancer Therapeutic Delivery " will be presented by Clarkson University Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science He Dong at the next Clarkson University Science Café on Tuesday, February 17, at 7:15 p.m. in the Park View Common Room, above the Blackbird Cafe, 107 Main St. in Canton, N.Y., and on Wednesday, February 18, at 7:15 p.m. in the Potsdam Civic Center Community Room in Potsdam, N.Y.

He DongChemotherapy and gene therapy are immensely valuable for cancer treatment. But how do the therapeutic agents reach the tumor sites and not act on healthy tissue?

Join Dong for a vivid discussion of her research on designing "smart" nanocarriers that specifically target our cancers, not us.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
