KIST/PU 2nd Annual Symposium: Molecular Imaging and Theragnosis

Category

Workshops

Published on

Abstract

This symposium presents an overview of the research of the Global Research Laboratory (GRL), a program that reflects a direct collaboration of scientific research between South Korea (Korea Institute of Science and Technology KIST and its affiliated research institutions) and the United States (Purdue University/Discovery Park and its affiliated academic units). This one-of-a-kind program is integrating molecular imaging and nanomedicine with chemistry, drug delivery, cell biology, and molecular biology, as well as cell engineering and clinical medicine.


In 2008, the 3rd Annual PU/KIST Symposium will be held June 2-4 in Seoul, South Korea. For more information about this upcoming event, contact Bindley Bioscience Center at: 765-494-0497.

  1. KIST/PU Introduction to Global Research Laboratory (GRL) Program: Molecular Imaging and Nanomedicine for Theragnosis using Nano-Bio Materials

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kui Won Choi

    The Global Research Laboratory (GRL) program was initiated by the Korea Foundation for International Cooperation of Science and Technology (KICOS) in 2006. The GRL program has been designed to develop fundamental and original technologies through international collaborative research between...

  2. KIST/PU Tumor-Homing Chitosan-Based Nanoparticles for Cancer Theragnosis; Imaging, Drug Delivery and Therapy

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ick Chan Kwon

    We have prepared self-assembled polymeric drug carriers containing fluorophore and loaded drugs for theragnostic imaging of tumors. This new type of polymeric drug carriers visualizes the accumulation of carriers at tumor sites, and evaluates therapeutic efficacies, and thereby providing an...

  3. KIST/PU Advances in detection systems for biology: Classifying signals from fluorescence and scatter

    08 Dec 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): J. Paul Robinson

    Biology-driven advances in photonic detection systems have been dramatic in the last several years. Three specific aspects are of particular interest: molecular detection, cellular detection, and whole-organ or small-animal imaging. Each area of study requires specific probes, detectors, and...

  4. KIST/PU A bi-functional block copolymer hydrogels and micelles for protein and drug delivery

    28 Nov 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Doo Sung Lee

    Novel biodegradable & injectable poly(β-amino ester)-poly(ε-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(ε-caprolactone)-poly(β-amino ester)(PAE-PCL-PEG-PCL-PAE) bi-functional, pH/temperature-sensitive, block copolymer hydrogels were prepared and applied to protein and drug delivery. In this...

  5. KIST/PU Multi-Component, Multi-Functional Nanomedical Systems for Drug/Gene Delivery

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): James Leary

    In this brief paper we describe some of our recent efforts to construct multi-component, multi-functional nanomedical systems for delivery of therapeutic genes. We first describe the general philosophy of our approach. Then we describe three specific aspects of the overall construction in simple...

  6. KIST/PU Infrared and Raman Chemical Imaging of Pharmaceutical Biological Matter

    06 Dec 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Tom Tague

    There have been several advances in instrumentation that now facilitate infrared and Raman imaging. Current Focal-Plane-Array (FPA) detectors are very robust and read out quickly for infrared imaging and fast CCD array detectors are now available for Raman imaging. For example, infrared data...

  7. KIST/PU Phage Display Selection of Tissue-Specific Homing Peptides and their Theragnostic Applications

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Byung-Heon Lee

    Several homing peptides that are specific to tumor cells, artherosclerotic plaques, stroke lesion, apoptotic cells and phosphatidylserine have been isolated by phage display in our laboratory. For example, the Bld-1 peptide is specific to bladder tumor cells and the AP-1 to atherosclerotic...

  8. KIST/PU Bridging Nonlinear Optical Imaging and Nanotechnology with Medicine

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ji-Xin Cheng

    Our interdisciplinary research develops and utilizes state-of-the-art optical imaging techniques and nanotechnology to tackle compelling biomedical problems highly related to human health. Research in my group covers diagnosis, treatment, and mechanistic study of diseases.

  9. KIST/PU Design and Performance of Bioresponsive Nanocarriers with Tunable Reactivity for Drug and Gene Delivery

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Dave Thompson

    Our lab has focused on the development of bioresponsive nanocarriers that are designed to release their cargo upon entry into acidic environments such as those found in cellular endosomes and sites of poor circulation. Computational methods have been used to design vinyl ether lipids of varying...

  10. KIST/PU Ligand-functionalized gold nanorods as theragnostic agents

    06 Dec 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alexander Wei

    Plasmon-resonant gold nanorods have been examined as multifunctional agents for imaging and photoactivated therapies. Nanorods can be imaged with single-particle sensitivity by two-photon luminescence (TPL) when excited by fs-pulsed laser irradiation, and have been monitored in vivo while...

  11. KIST/PU Multiplex Detection of Cell Surface Markers Using Plasmonic Sensors

    23 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joseph M K Irudayaraj

    Gold nanorod molecular probes (GNrMPs) were designed and fabricated for multiplex identification of cell surface markers in HBECs. Cells were probed directly using dark field microscopy integrated with a spectral imager for simultaneous detection of up to three surface markers. The...
