Invitation to a lecture

KAIST prepares a special lecture by University of Southern California Medical School Professor Kwang Jin Kim, leading researcher of the effects of nanoparticles on human bodies.

= Information = 

1. Date: 4 ? 5 pm, Tuesday, October 24, 2006

2. Venue: Video lecture room in KAIST Applied Engineering B/D (W1-3)

3. Title: Nanoparticles: Interaction with and trafficking across epithelial barriers (In English)

4. Speaker: Professor Kwang Jin Kim

                  Keck School of Medicine

                  University of Southern California -

(Secondary appointment in Physiology & Biophysics, Biomedical Engineering and Pharmacology & Pharmaceutical Sciences)

5. Contents:

Nanoparticles promise to be useful for many applications, although toxicity of these particles in biological tissues, and pathways by which inhaled particles reach the systemic circulation and target organs, are not well known. Size, shape, chemical composition and surface charge of nanoparticles may be important determinants for influencing biological activities in a given cell/tissue. In order to investigate nanoparticle interaction with air-blood barrier of the distal lung, we utilized primary rat alveolar epithelium cell monolayers (RAECM) and studied the toxicity and trafficking rates of polystyrene nanoparticles and quantum dots.
