Genetically Engineering BioNanostructures to Develop NanoBiotechnology and Nanomedicine
Chuanbin Mao is currently an Edith Kinney Gaylord Presidential Professor at the University of Oklahoma. His group exploits the use of genetically modifiable bionanostructures in the development of nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine. In the recent years, his group has studied three natural bionanostructures related to bacteria including phage, flagella and pili. His talk will focus on the genetic engineering of these bionanostructures and their integration with functional abiotic nanomaterials for nano/bio-materials synthesis/assembly, cancer and stem cell targeting, tumor tissue homing, cancer imaging and treatment, stem cell-based therapy, drug/gene delivery, and tissue regeneration.
