Title: Design and Delivery of Biotherapeutics: Engineered proteins and extracellular vesicles
Abstract: Our lab focuses on molecular engineering towards development of novel biomolecules with therapeutic potential. Additionally, we explore the therapeutic potential of extracellular vesicles (exosomes) as drug delivery vehicles and alternatives to cell-based therapies. This talk will focus on our efforts to engineer antibody-mimetic proteins for HER3-targeted cancer therapy and to enhance the potency and scalable production potential of extracellular vesicles for therapeutic vascularization applications.
