2012 Engineering Lecture Series: Into the Body: Molecular Systems for Healing
Kane Hall 120, UW Seattle

pun-stayton.jpgHow can molecular engineering improve cancer treatment? Suzie Pun and Patrick Stayton will explore molecular engineering and its potential medical benefits in their discussion, Into the Body: Molecular Systems for Healing.

The duo will discuss how molecular engineers are devising ways to deliver drugs to cells more precisely and visualize the human body in minute detail. They will also look at how these methods may lead to breakthroughs in allergy, asthma, and Alzheimer's care.

Suzie Pun is a Robert F. Rushmer associate professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington. Patrick Stayton is the director of the Molecular Engineering & Sciences Institute at the University of Washington.

THE 2012 ENGINEERING LECTURE SERIES takes a close look at how engineers are using small molecules to solve big problems. The emerging field of molecular engineering builds from the bottom up and aims high, promising new ways to diagnose disease earlier and treat it more precisely, and inexpensive and practical ways to harness clean sources of energy. The series will showcase how the UW's new Molecular Engineering and Sciences Institute is aiding these efforts by bringing together researchers from diverse disciplines in a collaborative working environment.
