Speaker: Prof. Mauro Ferrari (Houston Methodist Institute for Academic Medicine – Weill Cornell Medical School of Manhattan)

Prof. Mauro Ferrari (President of the Houston Methodist Institute for Academic Medicine and Dean & Professor at the Weill Cornell Medical School of Manhattan), will present a new drug (ML-016, a.k.a.iNPG-pDox), which was designed employing mathematical mechanics models, and has demonstrated unprecedented, curative efficacy in preclinical models of metastatic cancer. Before the statement of the general problems, some current aspects of nanotechnology and nanomedicine will be reviewed. Familiarity with these will aid in obtaining the special problems from the general problems, and in the discussion of the implications of their solutions for the clinic.
