Title:”Phage-based nanomedicine and regenerative medicine: from probes to therapeutics”
Phages can be pictured as nanostructures made of proteins and nuclei acids. They can be genetically engineered to bear the capability of targeting nanoparticles, cells, tissues, and organs, and serve as a platform for identifying peptides that can target receptors to trigger cell signaling pathways. They can also be integrated with functional abiotic nanomaterials and self-assemble into novel matrix and scaffolds with unique architectures. Therefore, they are ideal for many applications in precision nanomedicine and regenerative medicine. This talk will summarize my group’s recent studies on the use of phages in nanomedicine and regenerative medicine including ultrasensitive biomarker detection for disease diagnosis, targeted drug and gene delivery, directed stem cell differentiation, accelerated tissue formation, effective vaccination, and nano-therapeutics for targeted disease treatment.
