Targeted Nanosponges as Superior Delivery Systems: Practical Synthesis and Efficacy Testing

Eva M.  Harth

Eva M. Harth

Principal Investigator

Associate Professor of Chemistry at Vanderbilt University

Eva Harth was born in Cologne, Germany and studied chemistry at the University of Bonn and the University of Zurich, Switzerland. In 1994, she joined the group of Prof. K. Muellen at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research and obtained her PhD in 1998 for work in the area of fullerene adducts and polymers. A postdoctoral fellowship with CPIMA (NSF-Center for Polymer Interfaces and Macromolecular Assemblies) brought her to the IBM Almaden Research Center, California USA, to work under the direction of Prof. Craig J. Hawker, focusing on the development of new living free polymerization techniques and approaches to nanoscopic materials. In 2001, she joined XenoPort, Inc. as a Staff Scientist investigating enabling technologies for the increased bioavailability of macromolecular therapeutics. After the extensive industrial experience, she started at Vanderbilt University as Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry in 2004 with a secondary appointment in the Department of Pharmacology, Vanderbilt Medical School and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2011. In 2007, she was awarded with the NSF CAREER Award for young faculty and her research advances delivery technologies across challenging biological barriers and towards highly vascular tumors.
