Medical Imaging Technology Fair Lecture & Poster Session/Reception Keynote Speaker: Tayyaba Hasan, PhD Professor of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School Professor of Health Sciences and Technology (Harvard-MIT) Dr. Hasan's scientific efforts are focused on photochemistry-based approaches (photodynamic therapy, or PDT) for treatment and diagnosis of disease. The overall strategy is to develop molecular mechanisms and optical imaging-based combination treatment regimens where one treatment arm involves light activation of certain near-infrared-absorbing chemicals. This program identifies various cellular and molecular targets for specific diseases and designs constructs for optimal photochemical treatment effects. The targeting entities include photoactivatable nanoparticles and small molecules.
