On Monday, the 6th of June, the first lecture of a new ABM Module is going to take place. Master and PhD students will have the possibility to gain 3 points upon successful attendance, but the lectures will be open for everybody who's interested. Future time slots still need to be specified, but in general students will need about 12-15 DS in total.
The module will give an overview of recent developments in drug delivery and nanomedicine using
polymer systems. The topics covered will include biocompatibe polymers, polymer conjugates, nanoparticles, liposomes, polymeric micelles, and nanogels. Their interactions, with cells and body systems will be discussed along with applications in treatment of cancer and nurogenerative/neurodevelopmental diseases.
Prof. Sasha Kabanov is currently guest at the TU Dresden as a Dresden Fellow. He is the Director of the Center for Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery at UNC Chapel Hill and holds the Mescal S. Ferguson Distinguished Professor at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. Furthermore, he is Professor of Chemistry at Lomonosov State University Moscow, Russia. He is a elected member of the Academia Europaea and Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. He is a board member of numerous international journals and author of more than 250 articles in drug-delivery and nanomedicine. In 2014 he is named as a highly cited author by Thomson-Reuters. Prof. Kabanov is one of the most influential researchers in pharmaceutical sciences and especially nanomedicine.
