Summary Sentence: "Beyond Chemotherapy: Building a Cancer Nanotherapeutic Exploiting Tumor Immunopathophysiology" - Susan Thomas, PhD - Georgia Tech

Full Summary: The IBB Breakfast Club seminar series was started with the spirit of the Institute's interdisciplinary mission in mind and started to feature local IBB faculty member's research in a seminar format. Faculty are often asked to speak at other universities and conferences, but rarely present at their home institution, this seminar series is an attempt to close that gap. The IBB Breakfast Club is open to anyone in the bio-community.

"Beyond Chemotherapy: Building a Cancer Nanotherapeutic Exploiting Tumor Immunopathophysiology"

Susan Thomas, PhD

Assistant Professor
George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering
Georgia Tech

The transport of fluids, biomolecules and cells from the tumor microenvironment to draining lymph nodes and into the circulation is facilitated by the concerted influence of the blood and lymphatic vascular systems. Our efforts to characterize the impact of these transport processes on disease progression, in particular by regulating both metastasis and adaptive immunity, as well as to develop novel therapeutic approaches for tumor therapy that mitigate these effects, will be described.
