- Development of cell membrane-coated nanoparticle formulations
- Physicochemical and biological characteristics of cellular nanoparticles
- Organ-specific targeted delivery
- Intracellular delivery of biological drugs
Dr. Zhang will share the research discovery and entrepreneurial translation of his Cellular Nanoparticle (CNP) platform technology. Cellular Nanoparticles are nanoparticles clocked with wild-type or engineered cell membranes. By leveraging different cell membranes and functional proteins that can be expressed on the cell membranes, the CNP technology can achieve different therapeutic or vaccination results and drug delivery goals.
