Nanomedicine has enormous potential for revolutionizing cancer treatment and developing new ways for antibiotics to attack “superbugs”. By modeling how environmental exposures change DNA in cancer and other diseases\, she’s unlocking how gene expression changes biological systems at the molecular level. \nDavoud Mozhdehi wants to transcend the limitations of biological building blocks at the molecular level to create nanoscale biomaterials that can accomplish things that nature can’t. Utilizing some of the same chemical changes that cause cancer\, he’s imagining a world where a shape-shifting nanoparticle can selectively target cancer cells to deliver the cure directly where it’s needed. \nAs part of Syracuse University’s BioInspired Institute for Materials and Living Systems\, Nangia and Mozhdehi are helping to create the building blocks for a nanomedicine revolution with broad potential to bring hope and cures where none currently exist. Join them in this public presentation to learn more about how their understanding of molecular systems can lead to big changes in how we treat disease.
