Please join us for a special lecture honouring the memory of Irving O. Shoichet, as part of the Lectures at the Leading Edge
series of the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry.
The series provides an important forum for distinguished researchers from across North America and around the world to showcase cutting-edge scientific research that addresses critical issues facing our world today.
The Irving O. Shoichet Lectureship brings together innovative thinkers and scientists to stimulate discussion and generate ideas.
The series began in 2010 with MIT’s Professor Robert Langer on biomedical engineering, and continues in 2011 with lecturer Professor Rakesh Jain of Harvard University.
Professor Rakesh K. Jain’s seminar, entitled Delivery of molecular and nano-medicine in tumors
will illuminate the role of chemical engineering in understanding blood vessel function and cancer growth.
