Over fifty years ago, in his lecture “There’s plenty of room at the bottom” the famous physicist, Richard Feynman, showed how amazing and complex the microworld is. In the face of today’s rapidly changing reality, humankind is stepping into a competitive battle for the microworld and, primarily, its potential for biomedical applications. Addressing this challenge will certainly require an interdisciplinary approach and a concerted effort of chemists, physicists, biologists, and even software engineers.
Modern scientific achievements may spark a revolutionary change in the methods and tools of diagnosis and treatment. Preventive and personalized medicine are on the upswing. Science is about to invent a new generation of drug delivery systems using data from miniature sensors that, like spaceships, travel inside the human body and transmit information to mobile devices. Is this science fiction? Scientists believe otherwise.
Dmitry Gorin, a professor at the Skoltech Center for Photonics and Quantum Materials (CPQM), will talk about the newest achievements in the microworld research.
Dmitry Gorin, a professor at the Skoltech Center for Photonics and Quantum Materials (CPQM), worked at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces and the Saratov National Research University.
As a visiting scientist, he worked at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas, the Charité University Hospital in Berlin, Queen Mary University of London, Ankara University, the Ghent University, Tomsk Polytechnic University, and Bilkent University.
Dmitry authored over 240 papers and 20 patents.
