Dr. Yue-Wern Huang, professor of biological sciences, will present a lecture 3-4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8, in Room 104 Centennial Hall. Huang’s presentation will be titled “Delivery of Biologically Active Molecules for Biomedical Research and Application: Uptake, Efficacy and Toxicity.”
Huang will discuss nanotoxicity and the biocompatible platforms to deliver bioactive molecules. He will review his findings in the mechanisms of nanomaterial toxicity and the physicochemical properties of nanoparticles that dictate cytotoxicity. Huang will discuss three nanoscale and microscale delivery platforms: cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs), DNA nanostructures, and hydroxyapatites (HAs).
