Dr. Möhwald will address the conference participants on the topic, From Interfaces to Nanoparticle/Polyelectrolyte Hybrid Capsules and Back. Four additional internationally regarded plenary speakers will present topics on Supramolecular Assemblies, Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials, Biomaterial and Tissue Engineering, and Translational Nanomedicine. These guest speakers include Dr. Dennis Discher, University of Pennsylvania; Dr. Mark Saltzman, Yale University; Dr. Lonnie Shea, Northwestern University; and Dr. Chiming Wei, Johns Hopkins University.
In 2006, WSU’s President Irvin D. Reid, awarded $1.2 million in collaborative nanoscience research projects to Wayne State faculty as part of his President’s Research Enhancement Program. This investment was designed to strengthen the university’s position as a nationally recognized research institution, and to contribute towards developing research themes for the university that are consistent with an emphasis on its urban mission and global presence.
Registration continues through Friday, October 12. The cost for all students is $50 and $250 for faculty and regular attendees. For more information, click on Research.Wayne.Edu/Enatbio
