JCCC SeminarDr. Dean Ho

Presented by:
Dean Ho, Ph.D.
Professor Oral Biology and Medicine and Bioengineering
Co-Director, The Jane and Jerry Weintraub Center for Reconstructive Biotechnology
Member, JCCC Cancer Nanotechnology Program Area

Dr. Dean Ho's team is currently developing nanodiamond-based platforms for targeted chemotherapeutic delivery and nanodiamond-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) agents. His team has demonstrated marked enhancements to small molecule efficacy and safety in multiple drug-resistant tumor models. Ho's lab is also developing polymeric microfilm devices for localized release of multiple compounds.
