Supramolecular Chiral Nanomaterials for Immunoengineering

Jai Rudra - Washington University in St. Louis

Jai Rudra, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, is interested in the development of nano-scale biomaterials such as nanofibers, nanoparticles, virus-like particles, and hydrogels for engaging the immune system to induce protective antibody and cell-mediated immune responses against diseases such as tuberculosis, melanoma and flavivirus infections (West Nile and Zika). His lab is also investigating the development of vaccines against drugs of addiction such as cocaine. Read more from Professor Rudra's faculty profile.
