Faculty Search Candidate: Designer polymer excipients to enable next-generation insulin formulations


Caitlin Maikawa, PhD Abstract: Insulin was first isolated a century ago, yet commercial formulations of insulin for hormone replacement therapy fall short of mimicking the endogenous glycemic control that occurs in non-diabetic individuals. Moreover, diabetes management is increasingly relying on automated insulin delivery using closed-loop systems to improve glucose management and reduce patient burden. However, […]

Faculty Search Candidate Talk – Unconventional Nanobiophotonics: Upconversion/Persistent Luminescence Nanoparticles for Anti-cancer Therapy

Medical Sciences Building 3154

Kai Huang, PhD Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biotechnology University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School Abstract: Biophotonics has been widely applied as versatile and powerful approaches for biomedical applications, such as for bioimaging, biodetection, photodynamic therapy, and optogenetics. However, conventional biophotonics suffers from several constraints. For example, the short-wavelength excitation light cannot penetrate deep into […]
