Talk Title: Nanomaterials Enable Delivery of Genetic Material Without Transgene Integration in Mature Plants
Dr. Landry is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UC Berkeley as well as a faculty scientist in the Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging division at Berkeley Lab.
The Landry Lab’s work develops synthetic bio-mimetic nanocomposites to impart control over nanomaterial interactions with biological systems for two applications: 1) to exploit the intrinsic nanomaterial infrared fluorescence for molecular imaging, and 2) to exploit the highly tunable chemical and physical properties of nanomaterials for targeted delivery of biological cargoes.
