Nobel laureate Roger Tsien, Ph.D., keynotes Cedars-Sinai nanomedicine conference March 15, 16
Date:3/8/2013

many areas, such as biological imaging for early disease diagnosis, molecular imaging for early cancer detection, therapeutic targeting of cancer cells, and monitoring of individual cells and molecules as they move in their environments.

The conference's March 15 sessions will focus on nanomedicine for advanced imaging and targeted drug delivery. Tsien's 1 p.m. presentation will be on new molecules to image neuronal function and disease processes. Other sessions will include:

  • Transport oncophysics and opportunities for nanomedicine
  • Bringing nanomedicines to cell organelles
  • Nanoscale electrostatic delivery systems: from layered nanoparticles to RNAi microsponges
  • Design and biorecognition of water-soluble macromolecular therapeutics
  • Multivalent hyperbranched polymeric nanoparticles as self-reporting drug delivery vehicles
  • A window into the Alzheimer's brain
  • Direct brain MR-guided delivery of nanoparticles in neuro-oncology and neurodegenerative disorders
  • MRI of cancer using targeted contrast agents
  • Mapping the human vasculature by in vivo phage display
  • Ligand-directed targeting and molecular imaging in translational medicine
  • A discussion on multidisciplinary research in oncology, with a panel of experts from the National Institutes of Health

March 16 sessions, spotlighting nanotechnology's major role in the future of medical treatment, will include:

  • Nanotechnology for medicine
  • Harnessing the combined powers of antibody-fusion proteins and nanopolymers for cancer therapy
  • Nanomedicine for targeted drug delivery to epithelial barriers of intestines, skin and lung
  • The clinical significance of iron oxide nanoparticles
  • Supramolecular nanomedicines for targeted cancer therapy
  • Nanotechnology strategies to overcome multidrug resistance
  • Protein-based nanoparticles target tumors and drug resistance
  • Nanobiomaterials: advances, sa
