Mitochondrial dysfunctions cause many human disorders. In the recent years, targeting mitochondria emerged as an attractive strategy to control mitochondrial dysfunction related diseases. Despite the desire to direct therapeutics to the mitochondria, the actual task is more difficult due to the highly complex nature of the mitochondria. A platform technology for carrying bioactive molecules to different mitochondrial compartments could be of enormous potential benefit in medicine...

Through technologies like the integrated circuit, nanotechnology has revolutionized our lives. Furthermore, fields such as semiconductor physics have been built on a foundation provided by the patterning tools used to make these circuits. Unfortunately, our ability to make small structures composed of diverse materials, particularly the soft materials that are important in biology, is very limited. This limitation has left open important questions in fields spanning catalysis, bioengineering, and medicine. Scanning probe instruments, such as the atomic force microscope (AFM), have great promise because they enable the direct study of physical and chemical phenomena on the nanoscale... Read More ›
In this presentation, the properties of nanomaterials and challenges associated with using them for cancer targeting will be discussed, and finally, there will be a discussion on how microfluidics and DNA assembly techniques can be exploited to address the current limitations of nanomedicine...
