Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Time and Location: 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm LIB 121 @ SF State University Main Campus
Topic: "Nanostructured Biomaterials for Therapeutic Delivery"
Hosts: College of Science & Engineering

Prof. Tejal Desai is the Ernest L. Prien Professor and Chair of the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. Her research focusses on micro and nanofabrication techniques to create new devices for drug and cell delivery as well as biomaterials for cell and tissue regeneration. She is a fellow of the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering and the inaugural director of the UCSF Engineering and Applied Sciences Initiative Health Innovation Via Engineering. Among her many contributions to research, leadership, and education, Prof. Desai’s laboratory recently developed an implantable drug delivery device that spares glaucoma patients from daily medicated eye drops. 

In her talk, Prof. Desai will discuss her most recent work in developing nanostructured materials for protein and cell-based delivery as well as injectable micro/nanoscale materials for the modulation of fibrosis and immune activation. By gaining a better understanding of how small scale topographies influence biological micro-environments, she envisions that platforms may be designed for applications in therapeutic delivery and tissue regeneration.

Lunch will be provided.
