Due to technical difficulties, Podcast #56 failed to post properly. For this reason, we have reposted.

Regenerative Medicine Today welcomes Dr. Steven Little who is an Assistant Professor and Bicentennial Alumni Faculty Fellow, Departments of Chemical Engineering, Bioengineering, Immunology, and Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh.

Professor Little introduces us to his pioneering studies in targeted drug delivery. His focus is on the delivery of genetic vaccines with special emphasis on non-viral, particulate formulations. His current interests include controlled delivery for tissue engineering, immunotherapeutics, and biomimetic materials. He also shares his vision on the rate at which these emerging technologies will be available for clinical use.
