Dr. Keith Pardee will deliver an NMIN Lecture on the topic "Toward a Bio-Toolbox for Nanomedicine Research." However, the date of this presentation has been postponed until further notice. The new date will be announced when determined.
Dr. Pardee will share an update on his lab's effort to extend the cell-free production of custom biologics (antibodies, enzymes), with the goal of making them more accessible to nanomedicine researchers and others.
Dr. Keith Pardee is an Assistant Professor in the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. Dr. Pardee is working at the intersection of synthetic biology and human health. His lab is pioneering the development of in vitro devices to host cell-free synthetic gene networks for broad applications in research and human health. Dr. Padree's research interests include the development of molecular diagnostic tools for communicable diseases like Zika virus, distributed drug manufacturing, and regenerative medicine.
