A one-day workshop on nanotechnology and its applications to cancer research will take place Sept. 26 at Cornell.
Hosted by the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF) and the National Cancer Institute, the event will bring together experts in cancer biology and nanotechnology to discuss problems in the clinical and basic science of cancer, and to showcase nanotechnology advances that have led to breakthroughs in cancer research and treatment. The event will also highlight ongoing challenges in cancer research that nanotechnology may begin to address.
Scheduled keynote speakers are Tejal Desai, professor of physiology and director of the University of California-San Francisco Laboratory of Therapeutic Micro and Nanotechnology; and Jianyu Rao, associate professor of pathology and epidemiology at the University of California-Los Angeles.
Several Cornell researchers also will present their work, including Carl Batt, the Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor of Food Science; Manfred Lindau, professor of applied and engineering physics; and Cynthia Reinhart-King, assistant professor of biomedical engineering.
