Dr. Leder
Today, Anne Leder successfully defended her thesis "summa cum laude"!

Her work entitled "Entwicklung und Evaluierung eines mikroskaligen, Oligonukleotid-gekoppelten Eisenoxidpartikels zur Stimulation kultivierter humaner Hepatozyten" deals with particle-based delivery systems for therapeutic manipulation and tracking of transplanted cells by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) based on multifunctional, silica based micron-sized iron oxide-containing particles (sMPIO) that combine fluorescence imaging, MRI tracking, and on-the-spot targeting of specific microRNAs on a particle surface for therapeutic manipulation by RNA interference.
