Prof. Susan M. Wolf has received funding to analyze the ethical, legal, and social implications of DNA nanotechnology as part of a newly funded MnDRIVE project on “DNA Nanotechnology: Developing and Analyzing a New Tool for Sensing and Targeting Disease.” This project, led by Prof. Efie Kokkoli joined by Co-PIs Wolf, Karen Ashe, Scott McIvor, Walter Low, and Ted Labuza, will explore the implications of technology that combines DNA with nanostructures to treat disease and detect allergens.
