Notre Dame's Center for Nano Science and Technology

NDnano is a world-class, collaborative research center that includes faculty from seven departments across the colleges of Engineering and Science. The Center is focused on developing, characterizing, and applying new nanotechnology-based materials, processes, devices, and solutions that will better society.

NDnano’s mission is to promote, enable, and advance multidisciplinary nanotechnology education and research to include:

  • defining, manipulating, and controlling the properties of new nano-materials
  • collaborating with peer universities, industry, and government to accelerate advances in the field of nano science
  • developing solutions and applications that help address society's global issues while representing a force for good in the discussion on the ethics and possible societal impacts of the new science

NDnano Seminar: "A Magnetic 'Spin' on Nanomedicine"

-

Location: 258 Fitzpatrick Hall

Presented by Prof. Sakhrat Khizroev, Florida International University
Professor of Cellular Biology & Pharmacology, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine
Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, College of Engineering & Computing

Abstract: The emerging field of personalized nanomedicine promises unprecedented patient- and disease-specific medical diagnostic and treatment. Significant progress has been achieved in this field from the perspective of biotechnology. With the development of bioinformatics, there are endless computational resources and chemical databases to identify a molecular compound tailored to almost any biomarker. Conversely, the development of high technology to treat a disease at a fundamental single-molecule level is still in its very early stage. Such a technology-driven approach could significantly benefit from understanding the physics of nanomagnetics to enable a high-efficacy external-field control of intrinsic molecular processes that underlie specific diseases. Being complementary to the conventional approach, the new development can make its own special contribution to the big goal of making personalized nanomedicine a reality. This presentation will discuss our recent studies on using magneto-electric nanoparticles to advance the state of treatment of cancer, HIV/AIDs, and other diseases. The promising results of in-vitro and animal studies on mice will be presented to demonstrate the novel nanotechnology.…
