Nanoparticle researcher will inaugurate prestigious 'emerging leaders' lecture series
Date:1/3/2013

A noted researcher in nanomedicine ― preventing, diagnosing and treating disease with particles so small that thousands fit across the width of a human hair ― will deliver the inaugural presentation in "The Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture" at the next National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS).

ACS, the world's largest scientific society, announced today that Christy L. Haynes, Ph.D., will deliver the lecture at its 245th ACS National Meeting & Exposition in New Orleans. Haynes is an associate professor of chemistry at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. The meeting, April 7-11, 2013, has the theme "Chemistry of Energy and Food," and is expected to attract more than 10,000 scientists and others.

Haynes' lecture will include the latest findings from her lab on how nanoscale materials interact with both the human body and the environment. Other areas of research in the Haynes lab include measurement from single platelets (the blood components responsible for clotting), characterizing immune cell interactions in asthma/allergy and sensors for use in food and blood. Popular Science in October included Haynes, 35, on the magazine's "Brilliant 10" list, a group of "geniuses shaking up science today."

"Dr. Haynes is an emerging leader in the study of nanoparticles in medical applications," said 2013 ACS President Marinda Li Wu, Ph.D. "She pioneered a technique using carbon fiber electrodes to study how nanoparticle uptake affects cellular function. Her work puts her at the forefront of research on the impacts of the rapidly growing nanotechnology field."
