Abstract




INSTITUTE FOCUS:
Cancer Nanotechnology and Cellular Mechanics

OBJECTIVES
The overall objective is to enhance the ability to address overarching challenges in the areas of Cancer Nanotechnology and Mechanobiology. Highly interdisciplinary in nature, the 2013 Summer Institute will offer faculty expertise from biology, engineering, materials science, and nanotechnology through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab experiences.

Specific objectives include:

Educate researchers and graduate students about the fundamentals of cancer nanotechnology and cellular mechanics
Provide an intense learning experience and facilitate interaction among engineers, biologists, and clinicians
Train a new generation of researchers at the interaction of biology and engineering
