Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) August 24, 2010
Dr. Chad A. Mirkin is the Director of the International Institute for Nanotechnology, the George B. Rathmann Professor of Chemistry, Teacher of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Teacher of Biomedical Engineering, Professor of Materials Science & & Engineering, and Professor of Medicine.”
. Dr. Mirkin sums up, “Over the past decade, we have established methods for customizing nanoparticles with oligonucleotides and explored how they can be utilized as designer constructs for preparing extremely purchased, highly functional materials. During these research studies, we have found many uncommon basic properties that make these products specifically helpful in biodiagnostics and intracellular gene policy.”
. This lecture will certainly focus on the use of these customized nanoparticles in the highly selective and sensitive detection of nucleic acids and proteins. It will also present the idea of the “antisense” particle and other similarly functionalized particles. Such particles show a range of special commercial properties that make them very well-suited for gene policy. They can also be customized to control the binding strength to complementary target series providing a means to manage the degree of protein expression.
. Mirkin is a chemist and a world prominent nanoscience professional, who is understood for his advancement of nanoparticle-based biodetection plans, the innovation of Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and contributions to supramolecular chemistry. He is the author of over 410 manuscripts and over 370 patents and applications, and the creator of 3 companies, Nanosphere, NanoInk, and AuraSense which are commercializing nanotechnology applications in the life science and semiconductor markets. At present, he is listed as the most mentioned chemist on the planet (Thomson Reuters), and the leading most pointed out nanomedicine scientist on the planet (Nanomedicine Computer system registry).
. Dr. Mirkin has been recognized for his accomplishments with over 60 national and global awards.
. The Plenary Lecture will be part of the Opening Session for Pittcon 2011 which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from March 13-18, 2011, Georgia World Congress Center. The Plenary Lecture is followed immediately by a complimentary mixer and poster session. Click to get more information on Pittcon 2011.
