CIMIT Summer Education Series: Emerging Technologies for Drug Delivery

The CIMIT Summer Education Series 2010, “Emerging Technologies and Applications for Therapeutic Delivery of Drugs and Molecules” kicks off July 6th.  The entire series looks great and includes several talks related to bioMEMS/NEMS/microfluidic technology. (link to flyer)

In particular, the program on 7/13 specifically features bioMEMS, and the discussion on 7/27 is moderated by Jeffrey Borenstein who has developed a microfluidic drug delivery system for the ear.

The other talks on 7/6 and 7/20 also look fantastic and include HST Professor Jeffrey Karp and MIT Professor Bob Langer, inventor of countless drug delivery technologies which have spun out into successful companies.  Check it out!
