Title: Rewiring Cell Surfaces with click chemistry for applications in cell biology and tissue engineering

Presenter: Dr. Muhammad Yousaf, Professor, Dept of Chemistry, York University

 

Abstract:

1. An integrated method that combines bio orthogonal chemistry, liposome fusion and cell surface engineering will be introduced and applied to cell biology and biotechnology.
2. A new rapid and traceless click chemistry reaction that reacts with primary amines will be introduced and applications explored from bioconjugation to tissue engineering. Commercial aspects of the click chemistry reaction will also be discussed.
