- Nano@Wayne with L. James Lee, Ohio State University
- September 15 2015 at 2:30 PMWelcome CenterThe Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Nano@Wayne seminar on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center auditorium. The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested. The guest speaker will be Dr. L. James Lee, Helen C. Kurtz Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The Ohio State University. He will present, "Tethered Lipoplex Nanoparticle (TLN) Biochips for Extracellular Vesicles Based Early Cancer Diagnosis and Prognosis." Dr. Lee founded and serves as the Director of NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for Affordable Nanoengineering of Polymer Biomedical Devices (CANPBD) at OSU. His research interest includes BioMEMS/NEMS, micro-/nanofabrication, and polymer and composite materials. He has more than 350 refereed journal publications, 30 patents and patent applications, and 14 book chapters. Abstract: Cancers cause millions of deaths worldwide each year and the annual cancer related health care cost is more than $500 billion. Even with such heavy spending, mortality rates of many cancer types remain very high. For example, 5-year survival rate for lung cancer and pancreatic cancer is 15% and 6% respectively. In addition to developing new drugs and treatment methods, non-invasive early detection and prognosis methods provide great potential to reduce mortality rates of cancer. "Liquid biopsy" based on circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and extracellular vesicles (EVs) such as circulating microvesicles (MVs) or exosomes is currently the major focus of the field. Given their important role in regulating gene expression and recognizing that their dysfunction plays a critical role in human cancers, microRNAs (miRs) and messenger RNAs (mRNAs) have emerged as potential biomarkers for cancer detection. Here, we show that biochips using tethered lipoplex nanoparticles (TLNs) containing molecular beacons (MBs) can capture cell-derived EVs from body fluids such as blood and urine, and identify encapsulated RNA and EV surface membrane protein targets in a single step with minimal sample preparation (no need of exosome and total RNA collection) and sample size. A short reception will immediately follow Dr. Lee's presentation.
