Engineering Therapies for the Pediatric Brain
October 26, 2022 - 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Children make up 27% of the world’s population, but most therapeutics for brain disease are tested on adults with pediatric clinical trials often following years later. This has led to a significant gap in medical technology for infants and children. UW chemical engineering associate professor Elizabeth Nance is developing therapeutics for newborn and pediatric brain disease, with the goal of improving neurological function and quality of life. Learn more about Nance’s work to expand brain health options through these early stages of life.
Elizabeth Nance is the Jagjeet and Janice Bindra Endowed Career Development Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering, with appointments in bioengineering and radiology, and affiliate memberships with the eScience Institute, Molecular Engineering & Sciences Institute, and Center on Human Development and Disability. Nance’s research focuses on understanding the brain’s response to injury or disease and developing nanotherapeutic platforms to treat brain disease, using nanotechnology, neurobiology, and data science tools.
