SEMINAR: Developing a common approach to target chronic inflammatory diseases for imaging and therapy
|Developing a common approach to target chronic inflammatory diseases for imaging and therapy : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series
The Seminar: In this seminar, Juliana will present her current work on novel approach to specifically target chronic inflammatory diseases including cancer and atherosclerotic lesions in vivo. She will discuss how this approach can be used to specifically deliver diagnostic reagents and therapeutics in mouse models of solid tumours and atherosclerosis
The Speaker: Juliana Hamzah is a NHMRC-National Heart Foundation R.D. Wright research fellow with expertise on targeted delivery for imaging and therapy. She is currently a Research Assistant Professor at Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR), UWA. Previously she was an American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Nanomedicine, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, California (2009-2012). Juliana obtained her PhD at UWA and did her first postdoctoral training in Prof. Ruth Ganss’s laboratory at WAIMR (2006-2009).
Her research focused on developing strategies to specifically target pathological lesions including cancer and atherosclerosis for local therapeutic intervention and in vivo imaging. Specifically, she designed cell-specific delivery systems that target abnormal vasculature and other abnormal stromal cells such as macrophages and extracellular matrix in the diseased tissues. Her work was published in journals including Nature, Journal of Clinical Investigation and PNAS.
