"Co-opting Moore's Law: The Cost-Effective Design of Vaccines & Therapeutics"

When: Tuesday, September 18, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Building : 2110
Event Type(s): Health,Lecture,Seminar

Top-down nano-fabrication technology from the semiconductor industry is, for the first time, in the size range to be relevant for the design of medicines, vaccines and interfacially active Janus particles.

Professor Joseph DeSimone is an innovative polymer chemist who has made breakthrough contributions in green chemistry, fluoropolymer synthesis, colloid science and nano-biomaterials. In this seminar, he will discuss PRINT (Particle Replication in Non-wetting Templates), a continuous, roll-to-roll, high resolution molding technique that allows the fabrication of precisely defined micro- and nano-particles. PRINT can be used in the design of highly effective chemo-therapeutics, respiratory therapeutics and vaccines.
