DNA nanostructures as building blocks for research & future medical therapeutics

William Shih is the principal investigator at the Shih Laboratory - Harvard Medical School - which is developing self-assembling DNA nanostructures and devices for use in biomedical applications. The group previously solved a key challenge for nanotechnology: programmable self-assembly of complex, three-dimensional nanostructures - a process known as DNA origami. The lecture will discuss applications of the technology for medical therapeutics.
