I am Dr. Ennio Tasciotti, co-chair of The Department of Nanomedicine at the Houston Methodist Research Institute. AMA!
I have an educational background in biological sciences and molecular medicine. My research has focused on gene therapy and stem cell therapy for various diseases and applications (cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and cancer), as well as using nanotechnology for for targeted drug delivery and tissue engineering. Whether your questions are about working at a research institution, cancer therapy, regenerative medicine or just general curiosities about nanotechnology, I’m excited to answer them! You can learn more about me and my research here: http://www.methodisthealth.com/EnnioTasciottiPhD.
Transparency note: I will have someone typing out my responses to help save time. I hope this will allow me to answer more of your questions! The responses being given are 100% in my words.
(This is David) Sadly, we are out of time. We are floored and grateful for the number of questions Dr. Tasciotti received, and are sad we didn't have time to answer every single one of them. Dr. Tasciotti may be able to come back later and answer a few, but now he must run to his next appointment. Thanks so much. We will be doing occasional AMAs with Methodist's best scientists in the future, and will always crosspost to r/science and/or r/medicine. Cheers and ciao!
