Speaker: Willem J. Mulder, PhD
                Icahn School at Mount Sinai School of Medicine      
Title: Nanoimmunotherapy: Taking Control of Immunity    
Location: Biomedical Engineering Building Auditorium
Time: 1:45 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.
 
Dr. Willem Mulder has an M.Sc. in Chemistry from the Utrecht University (2001) and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology (2006). In 2006, after his recruitment to Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) in New York, Dr. Mulder founded the Nanomedicine lab, one of four programs within Sinai’s Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute. Currently, he is Professor in Mount Sinai's Department of Radiology. Dr. Mulder also directs a research lab at the Eindhoven of Technology in the Netherlands, where he is Professor of Precision Medicine.

Dr. Mulder's research focuses on precision imaging and targeted therapy in cardiovascular disease, cancer and transplantation. He has established library technology, encompassing nanomaterials derived from natural lipoproteins (nanobiologics), that allows meticulously designing targeted immunotherapies. When appropriately designed, such nanobiologics can be applied to empower the immune system’s ability to fight disease, by promoting or inhibiting an immune response, by polarizing macrophage function, or by targeting myeloid cell dynamics.
