Come to an inspirational talk by chemical and biomedical engineer Dr. Robert Langer; one of the world’s ten most cited researchers and leader of one of the most productive and profitable research facilities.
The talk; “A Quest to Solve Global Health Challenges using Biotechnology – Innovation and Science at the Intersection of Engineering and Medicine” will be followed by a Q & A session.
Learn how the Langer Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) navigates the interface of biology, medicine and materials science. With focus on developing delivery systems for drugs, engineered proteins, DNA or RNAi, work from the Langer lab targets several disease areas including cancer and diabetes.
Date: 23. October 2018
Time: 14:30 – 15:30
Venue: The Niels K. Jerne Auditorium, Maersk Tower (Panum), Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. Blegdamsvej 3B, 2200 Copenhagen.
