Many of the issues with drug side effects result drug being in the wrong location, or ineffective levels (too much or too little) in the target region. These can result from non-compliance due to frequent dosage required, inability for the drug to reach the target, or loss of drug on the way to the target. This talk will focus on the basics of how polymers can be used to control a drugs delivery location, provide protection during dosage, and extend release time.

Noelle Comolli, is Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Director of the Biomaterials and Drug Delivery Laboratory at Villanova College of Engineering. Her research has included nanoparticles for axonal guidance after spinal cord injury, thin film delivery of anti-inflammatory agents, development of novel microparticles for tumor targeting, and nanoparticles for inhaled drug delivery. She also is involved as part of Villanova’s NSF ADVANCE project team to promote women and under-represented minorities in STEM, and is the faculty advisor to the Society of Women in Engineering student chapter at Villanova. Dr. Comolli received her BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware, and her PhD in Chemical Engineering from Drexel University in 2007. Before starting at Villanova, she worked as a Ruth L. Kirschstein post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Neurobiology at the Drexel College of Medicine.

Please register no later than Tuesday May 28 at 5:15 PM. Cancellation requests received by the registration deadline will be fully refunded.
