Cell-Nanomaterial Interaction: Implications in Cell-Signaling and Targeted Therapy

Rachel  Kudgus

Rachel Kudgus

Research Fellow

Mayo Clinic

Dr. Kudgus was born and raised in upstate New York. She received a BS in chemistry from Binghamton University in New York in 2004. While completing her BS she performed undergraduate research in a synthetic organic laboratory under the supervision of Professor Scott Handy. She later split her graduate studies between North Carolina State University and University of Colorado at Boulder. Her graduate work was focused on the synthesis, characterization and application of nanotherapeutics for the disruption of protein-protein interactions and the treatment of multi-drug resistant bacteria. She worked with Professor Daniel Feldheim in Colorado and with Professor Christian Melander in North Carolina and ultimately earned her PhD in chemistry from North Carolina State University in 2010. She is currently a research fellow with Professor Priyabrata Mukherjee in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester. At present, she is working on understanding the principles of cell-nanomaterial interaction and exploiting these principles for the benefit of nanotechnology in human health care, specifically targeted delivery treatment of pancreatic and ovarian cancers. Her research interests include the synthesis, analysis and characterization of gold nanostructures for biomedical applications.
