New York,NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
BioTechniques: The International Journal of Life Science Methods will celebrate 30 years of publishing methods and techniques for life science researchers with a special BioTechniques 30th Anniversary Lecture to be held as part of the 2013 BioTechniques Virtual Symposium on Exploring the Modern Lab.
The lecture titled “Novel Drug Delivery Systems: From Controlled Release of Macromolecules to the Current Era of Nanotechnology and Nucleic Acid Delivery” will be delivered by Robert Langer, Sc.D., the David H. Koch Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Over his career, Dr. Langer has been at the forefront of developing new methods for small molecule, drug and gene delivery. This special lecture will focus on various delivery methods and techniques, delivery vehicles and the impact these efforts have had for both basic science and the development of clinical drug delivery systems.
Speakers and sessions include:
Feng Zhang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Core Member of the Broad Institute of Harvard University and MIT
Dr. Zhang’s talk will focus on the development of nuclease-based genome engineering tools with an emphasis on the recently reported CRISPR-Cas system.
Hannele Ruohola-Baker, Ph.D., Professor of Biochemistry, University of Washington
Dr. Ruohola-Baker will discuss her lab’s efforts to understand the link between miRNA function, gene regulation and stem cell phenotype.
Jo Vandesompele, Ph.D., Professor of Functional Genomics and Applied Bioinformatics, Ghent University
Dr. Vandesompele will examine the latest advances in qPCR me
