UofL Micro/Nano Technology Center Seminar: Dr. Renat R. Letfullin

Design and Activation of Nanoparticles for Cancer Therapy

Renat R. Letfullin

Department of Physics and Optical Engineering

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017, 11:00 am – Noon

University of Louisville Shumaker Research Building, Room 139

Refreshments will be served.

Presented will be an overview of recent scientific and engineering advances in nanomedicine and its current and potential applications.  The interaction between nanoparticles and radiation holds great interest and promise in nanomedicine, introducing such possibilities as selective cell targeting by nanoparticles to create highly localized thermal cell damage.  We will discuss the design and methods of activation of nanodrugs selectively delivered to the tumor site, with new dynamic modes in selective nanophotothermolysis of cancer.
