Dennis E. Discher is professor, School of Engineering and Applied Science, Depts. of Chemical & Biomolecular, Mechanical, and Bio- Engineering and Graduate Groups  in  Physics & Cell and Molecular Biology, Institute for Medicine and Engineering, Pennsylvania Muscle Institute, NSF-MRSEC Laboratory for Research on Structure of Matter/ Soft Materials group Co-Leader NSF-NSEC NanoScience & Eng’g. Center, Wistar Institute - Structural Biology Program (Adjunct)

Prof. Discher’s research focuses on functional materials aspects of polymers, cells and biomolecules, especially membranes and interfaces. His group uses and develops single molecule and single cell manipulation methods, microscopies, molecular and cell biological systems and reagents, computational statistical mechanics approaches, and appropriate field theories. The research is highly interdisciplinary and draws from expertise in the biological sciences, physics, chemistry, and engineering.

Speaking in the special symposium on Nanotechnology for Cancer Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment - CancerNano 2006.
