New publication on HIF-2a silencing

We have a new paper out, which shows that silencing a hypoxia-responsive gene can cause glioblastoma stem cells to revert to a less malignant phenotype: Great job Leora and Shaili!

Postdoctoral Associate Position

I currently have a search ongoing for a postdoctoral associate to work on our NIH-funded project on nanomedicines that penetrate bacteria biofilms and cystic fibrosis mucus. Details and applications to

Charlie receives NIH grant!

The NIH has awarded us a two-year R21 grant in the amount of $420,025 to support our project “Surface Active Polyelectrolyte Nanomedicine for Treatment of Lung Infections in Cystic Fibrosis.” This support will allow us to study and optimize the mucus and biofilm penetrating properties of our polyelectrolyte-based nanoparticles, which will ultimately enable improved delivery … Read More
