Huang-Ge Zhang, DVM, PhD
Exosomes as an Emerging Target in Cancer Progression and a Nanovector for Cancer Therapy
Professor and Founders’ Chair in Cancer Research, James Graham Brown Cancer Center, Director of the Chemoprevention Program, University of Louisville
2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016
Dr. Zhang will discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie tumor exosome-mediated immune suppression through induction of myeloid suppressor cells in a TLR-dependent manner. He will also describe his progress toward developing an edible plant-derived nanovector as a drug/miRNA delivery vehicle for targeting inflammatory (microglia) and tumor cells in mice, including in brain tumors.
