Leading biomedical engineer to discuss cutting-edge cancer treatment technology

Katherine Whittaker Ferrara, professor of biomedical engineering at University of California, Davis, will present the Angelmarie Adamczyk Lecture Series March 19 at 4 p.m. in the Wolstein Research Building. As the Adamczyk Lecturer, Ferrara will discuss “Image-guided Nanodelivery.” A light reception will follow the lecture.

The Adamczyk Lecture showcases the use of cutting-edge technology in the development of noninvasive diagnostics and novel therapies, especially in the context of cancer treatments. The lectureship is held by nationally recognized leaders who have a major impact on science now and in the future.

Ferrara was the unanimous choice of the graduate student organizing committee for her work in targeted imaging techniques for cancer diagnosis, therapy monitoring and image-guided drug delivery. She is a fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society, the Acoustical Society of America and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a member of the National Advisory Council for the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.

This event is organized by the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student Association and funded by the Adamczyk family, Case Center for Imaging Research and Graduate Student Senate.
