At the heart of the mission: build long-term collaborations across the two campuses. Goldberg and Ravid began organizing meetings with physics and engineering colleagues and MED researchers and clinicians and set up a series of lectures and workshops explaining how nanotechnology could impact cancer, cardiovascular disease, and infectious disease.”
