Adah Almutairi, an Associate Professor at UC San Diego, has received recognitions like the NIH New Innovator Award, is a specialist in bioresponsive materials and leads an interdisciplinary research team at UC San Diego. In her research, she applies cutting-edge macromolecular engineering techniques and nanotechnology to innovate the visualisation of molecular processes in living organisms and to improve drug delivery and biopharmaceutics. Her group’s most recent discovery is a novel mechanism which uses light to activate drug-delivering nanoparticles and other targeted therapeutic substances inside the body. At her Mt Sinai seminar, Adah Almutairi will present an overview of her fascinating research and an outlook on its groundbreaking possibilities in health care.
