Keck Foundation funds study of biological interactions with nanomaterials
Date:9/11/2007

pacts of exposure on gene regulation.

The researchers will address existing gaps in the field, from the basic construction of nanoparticles to how they interface with biological cells. As the foundation for the project, the group will build upon the library of gold nanoparticles created by Hutchison using his patented green-chemistry approach.

Our goal is to define the important interactions at the bio-nano interface, as well as the ground rules for producing nanoparticles that have very fine-tuned objectives, Hutchison said. The end results could lead to a variety of future therapeutics that specifically seek out and destroy cancer cells or promote desired cell growth for tissue regeneration.

The Keck Foundation funds will cover just under $1 million in graduate and faculty research, with the remainder going toward the purchase of equipment and space for housing it. The instruments will go into the Lorry I. Lokey Laboratories, the underground portion of the Integrated Science Complex, where some of the projects research will be conducted.
