BE Seminar: “From Bench to Pet-Side: Intratumoral Immunotherapy Principles and Practice” (Noor Momin)

Immunotherapies harness the body’s immune system to fight disease. Such therapies can help unleash an immune attack against diseased tissues but can inadvertently instigate an attack on healthy tissues. As a result, many promising immunotherapies face major toxicities, limiting their clinical use. By employing an iterative process that entails measuring, making, and modeling to manipulate […]

BE Seminar: “Orchestrating Cellular Regeneration at Organ Scale” (Yvon Woappi)

Large scale tissue damage, such as organ failure and burn injury, is a leading cause of morbidity and death. However, the mechanisms underlying full regeneration of organs remain poorly understood. As the largest organ system in the body, the integumentary system is a composite tissue assembly evolutionarily adapted for healing. Consequently, its complex physiology requires […]

BE Seminar: “Visualizing the Unseen: Enabling Precision Oncology Through Microenvironment-Triggered Diagnostics and Therapeutics” (Liangliang Hao)

The successful integration of precision diagnostics with new personalized therapies opens numerous doors to improve the management of a variety of diseases. In cancer, tissue-environmental features of tumor progression and invasion, including aberrant extracellular matrix remodeling, stromal composition changes, and immune cell engagement, create engineering opportunities for use in developing novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets. […]
