Thrilled to see our work featured in AIChE-CEP Magazine highlighting our development of a non-invasive tool, based on microneedles and Simoa, to monitor melanoma patients' response to immunotherapy (Link to article) (PDF)


Natalie Artzi awarded as the 2024 Acta Biomaterialia Silver Medal recipient


It was a pleasure to join the 2023 Wyss Institute Retreat, during which Natalie Artzi Chaired a panel on cancer and Michelle Dion presented her work with the greater Wyss community.


Thank you to the Langer Lab for hosting a wonderful seminar. Natalie Artzi presented on using engineering nanoparticles and microneedles to precisely modulate the immune system.


Celebrating the Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery Symposiom (NanoDDS) 2023 with all who participated. It was a joyful success thanks to Chair, Natalie Artzi, and Co-Chairs, Jinjun Shi, Tatiana Novobrantseva, Laura Sepp-Lorenzino, and Ana Jaklenec.


Congratulations to Natalie Artzi for being elected as a fellow of the Controlled Release Society


Congratulations to Maria Poley for being awarded the NIH T32 Fellowship
