PresenterEster Kwon, PhD

Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the University of California San Diego

Principal Investigator of the Kwon Lab, Nanoscale Bioengineering Group

Title: "Engineered Nanomaterials as Medicines for Traumatic Brain Injuries"

Presentation Summary: Dr. Kwon's presentation will discuss how the dysregulated vasculature in traumatic brain injury can be exploited by engineered nanomaterials for passive accumulation. This accumulation is dependent on time and the physicochemical properties of nanomaterials. Furthermore, she will discuss how active targeting can be combined with passive accumulation to increase the function of engineered nanomaterials.  

OCTOBER 17-19, 2021


ANA2021 is the top meeting for academic neurologists and neuroscientists at every career stage to connect over groundbreaking research and best practices for success in the field. The reimagined program builds on the successes of last year's Virtual Annual Meeting while taking into consideration attendee feedback on how we might make the event even more accessible and engaging.
