Building Biologically Inspired Nano-Bots
Sat, February 25 @ 9:30 am
This presentation will discuss the use of both synthetic and molecular biology approaches to produce small nano-machines, termed nano-bots, with defined and measurable characteristics. The main building blocks for these nano-bots are based on nano-lipo-protein particles (NLPs). These NLP particles are made up of a lipid raft surrounded by proteins that naturally exist in the human body to transport cholesterol. The nano-bots can be modified on the surface or embedded with additional biomolecules for specific activity. These nan-bots represent unique and novel approaches to vaccines discovery, drug delivery and energy needs.
