  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Fri, Dec 01, 2017

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Receptions & Special Events

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

  • Department of Biomedical Engineering Systems Cellular-Molecular Bioengineering Distinguished Speaker Series

    Fri, Dec 01, 2017 @ 03:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Alfred E. Mann Department of Biomedical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Warren Chan, Distinguished Professor Institute of Biomaterials & Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomedical Research (CCBR) Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry

    Talk Title: Cancer Nanomedicine: The challenge of targeting nanoparticles into solid tumors

    Series: Department of Biomedical Engineering Systems Cellular-Molecular Bioengineering Distinguished Speaker Series

    Abstract: Nanotechnology involves the engineering of structures, materials, and particle in the size range of 1 to 100 nm. These nanostructures have unique biological, optical, electrical and magnetic properties that are in direct relationship to their size, shape, and surface chemistry. As a result of these properties, nanotechnology is currently exploited in medicine for diagnosing and treating diseases. In this presentation, the properties of nanomaterials and challenges associated with using them for cancer targeting will be discussed.The discussion will focus on how biological fluids, serum proteins, and the liver influence the morphology, surface chemistry, and targeting ability of the nanoparticles in cells outside and inside the body. We will further describe chemical strategies using DNA-based molecular assembly to address the nanoparticle "delivery" challenge.

    Biography: Dr. Chan is currently a Distinguished Professor in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto. Dr. Chan received his B.S. degree from the University of Illinois in 1996, Ph.D. degree from Indiana University in 2001, and post-doctoral training at the University of California (San Diego). He moved to Toronto in 2002 to lead the Integrated Nanotechnology/Biomedical Sciences Laboratory. His research interest is in the development and translation of nanotechnology for diagnosing and treating cancer and infectious diseases. He has received NSERC E. W. R. Memorial Steacie Fellowship, Kabiller Young Investigator Award in Nanomedicine, the BF Goodrich Young Inventors Award, Lord Rank Prize Fund award in Optoelectronics (England), and Dennis Gabor Award (Hungary). He is currently an Associate Editor of ACS Nano. Finally, he is also affiliated with a number of different departments at the University of Toronto: Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the Terrence Donnelly Center for Cellular and Biomolecular Research Chemistry, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
