NSF seed grant supports biomanufacturing of new drug delivery technologies

Oct. 21, 2020—One of the challenges of drug delivery systems is to optimize their targeting properties so therapeutic compounds used in smaller amounts reach only a specific area of the body and result in little or no side effects. The ability to engineer the content of extracellular vesicles and target these EVs to specific sites offers the...

New faculty: John Wilson uses synthetic vaccines to further the fight against diseases

Oct. 7, 2013—Growing up close to nature in the small timber-and-fishing community of Gold Beach, Ore.—population 2,000—gave John Wilson an early interest in biology and biologically inspired design. That, combined with an aptitude for math and physics, drew him into the field of bioengineering. When Wilson sets up his lab at Vanderbilt in January, the new assistant...
