To address the rapidly rising costs of health care, Penn Dental Medicine's Henry Daniell has developed an innovative technology that relies on plant cells to produce and deliver human therapeutic proteins to treat infectious and inherited diseases. In this talk, Daniell will explain how his concept eliminates the need for the expensive purification, cold storage and sterile injections and is quickly advancing to the stage of clinical application.
The talk is part of the Penn Science Café free public-lecture series presented by the School of Arts and Sciences and the Office of University Communications that takes science out of the lab for a night on the town. Dr. Daniell’s presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Seating is limited.
