The next CDT Seminar will be held Monday, February 25th, at the Petit Science Center in PSC124. Please join us to hear Dr. Hamed Laroui from the Biology Department of Georgia State University. His talk is entitled “Nanomedicine in GI.”
Dr. Laroui is an Assistant Professor with the Biology Department for Georgia State University. Dr. Laroui’s goal is to develop drugs that will effectively treat IBD and colorectal cancer, ultimately providing a better cure for patients who are affected by these diseases. His strategy of targeting the colon with anti-inflammatory/anti-cancer drug-loaded nanoparticles (NPs) encapsulated in an alginate-chitosan hydrogel could be adapted to target other organs, such as the prostate and liver. He has published these studies in journals such as Gastroenterology, Biomaterials and the Journal Biological Chemistry.
There will be a Meet and Greet at 12:45pm with coffee and cookies.
I look forward to seeing you there,
Jenny J. Yang, Ph.D.
