In April 2001, UNMC's Mini-Medical
School presented “Genes & Chips: Combining New Science, New Technology for a
Healthier Tomorrow.” The series discussed new ways of diagnosing and preventing
disease through the merging of computer science, engineering and medicine. In
this presentation Sasha emphasized on how researchers are developing new drug
delivery systems that will act like magic bullets.

Since the "War on Cancer"
was declared more than 30 years ago, there have been incredible advances in
cancer detection, prevention and treatment. The University of Nebraska Medical
Center has been on the leading edge of those advances with breakthrough research
and therapy developments.
"Polymer Nanomaterials for Drug
Delivery" Click to
AAPS Webinar Original Event Date :
Friday, February 29, 2008
A new generation of polymer
therapeutics has emerged which uses self-assembling nanomaterials for delivery
of drugs, genes, and imaging molecules. Examples include polymer micelles,
nanogels and block ionomer complexes that entrap small drugs or biopolymers
(DNA, proteins) and are designed to release these agents at the target site.
Application of these materials in therapies of cancer and neurodegenerative
disorders will be discussed along with new pharmacogenomic
