2018-19 Medical Imaging Technology Fair

Feb 27

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
TBD

Presenter

Tayyaba Hasan, Ph.D. Professor of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School

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. A poster session and reception will follow Dr. Hasan's lecture.
