The next CDT Seminar will be held Tuesday, October 15th, at 1:30pm in the Petit Science Center, room PSC 124. Please join us to hear our outside speaker Dr. Vince Rotello, the Charles A. Goessmann Professor of Chemistry at The University of Massachusetts at Amherst. His talk is entitled “Gold Nanoparticles in Biomedicine: Delivery and Diagnostics”. Dr. Rotello received his B.S. in Chemistry in 1985 from Illinois Institute of Technology, and his Ph. D. in 1990 in Chemistry from Yale University. He was an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1990-1993, and joined the faculty at the University of Massachusetts in 1993. He has been the recipient of the NSF CAREER and Cottrell Scholar awards, as well as the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar, the Sloan Fellowships, and the Langmuir Lectureship, and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and of the Royal Society of Chemistry (U.K.). He is currently the Editor in Chief (as of 1/1/2014) of Bioconjugate Chemistry, has served as Executive Editor at Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, and is on the Editorial Board of 12 other journals. His research program focuses on using synthetic organic chemistry to engineer the interface between hard and soft materials, and spans the areas of devices, polymers, and nanotechnology/bionanotechnology, with over 390 papers published to date. He is actively involved in the development of new nanomanufacturing methods, and in the area of bionanotechnology his research includes programs in delivery, imaging, diagnostics and nanotoxicology.
There will be a meet and greet with coffee and cookies from 1:15pm – 1:30pm
I look forward to seeing you there.
