I-CORE Gene Regulation in Complex Human Disease sponsors Summer School on Nanomedicine and Innovation

I-CORE for Gene Regulation in Complex Human Disease faculty Prof. Dan Peer and Prof. Karen Avraham co-organized, along with Prof. Yael Hanein (Director of the Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology), the Summer School on Nanomedicine and Innovation. This week-long course, sponsored by I-CORE, took place at Tel Aviv University, with students and speakers from around the world. Speakers arrived from the US, Denmark, Canada and the UK, including Prof. Frank Slack, who arrived immediately prior to setting up a new research institute on RNA and therapy at Harvard. Participants arrived from the US, Philippines, Poland, Russia, India, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Romania, Denmark, Belarus and the UK, as well as graduate students and post-docs from Israel. Following a captivating introductory day on nanomedicine, with an emphasis on carrier-mediated drug targeting, the days were filled with lectures on RNA delivery and nano-diagnostics, tissue engineering, micro and nanotechnologies for cardiac tissue engineering, success stories in nanomedicine and the road to commercialization. Lab hands-on demonstrations covered liposomes and atomic force microscopy.
