German materials science expert Professor Tanja Weil will explain how extremely small nano-materials offer a big step forward in enabling better diagnosis and treatment against disease due to their unique properties.
The term 'nano' denotes extremely small dimensions of only a few billionths of a metre (nanometres). In this lecture, Professor Weil will give insights into the emerging field of nanotherapeutics and how nanomaterials such as ultra-small diamond particles can be prepared with various surface functionalities to enable their transport across biological barriers into diseased tissues and cells. These new materials provide unique opportunities for the therapy and diagnosis of severe diseases such as cancer or viral infections, due to their extremely small size and attached chemical barcodes. Nanoscience aspires to gain fundamental insights to the interactions of polymeric nanomaterials with cells as the smallest units of life, with the aim of transporting cleverly packaged drugs more effectively to the target site in the body so that they provide higher efficacy with less side effects. New avenues in diamond theranostics will also enable better therapy and diagnostics through high-contrast tracking of drug transport within diseased tissue.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Professor Tanja Weil, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Germany
Professor Tanja Weil joined the Max Planck Society in 2017 as one of the directors of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research heading the Synthesis of Macromolecules department. Her current scientific interests include the synthesis of quantum materials, customised and adaptive macromolecules for precision sensing and therapy, and polymeric catalysts and hybrid membranes that outperform existing polymeric materials. She has published about 140 scientific publications and the same number of patent applications and she serves on several advisory committees, editorial and advisory boards such as Journal of the American Chemical Society, Biomacromolecules, Biomaterials Science and Macromolecular Bioscience and Advanced Sciences.
