Virtual Seminar: Engineering the Bio/Nano Interface for Enhanced Nano-Immunotherapy

Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC

Engineering the Bio/Nano Interface for Enhanced Nano-Immunotherapy

Date: Nov. 13, 2020
Time: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Virtual Access:
Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, staff, and students will be sent an email with Zoom login credentials. 

Self-assembled nanobiomaterials that are engineered to achieve specific biodistributions and mechanisms of degradation hold great promise for controlled stimulation of the immune system.  Taking advantage of the morphological flexibility of self-assembled systems, Dr. Scott's research aims to mimic various structures and biochemical mechanisms of pathogens to enhance cell-selective intracellular delivery and treatment efficacy during immunotherapy.
