About the Speaker

Kattesh V. Katti 's ground breaking inventions in chemical, green nanotechnological and nano-biomedical sciences, have made transformative difference in cancer diagnostics and therapy. Dr. Katti has received a number of international awards which include: one of ‘25 Most Influential Scientists In Molecular Imaging in the World’ award by RT Image, the ‘Father of Green Nanotechnology’ citation by the Nobel Prize Winner Norman Borlaug, Gauss Professorship from the Gottingen Academy of Sciences, ‘Outstanding Scientists Fellows’ award and his induction as a Fellow of the Academy of Science, St Louis, and many more. Dr. Katti has published over 250 peer reviewed publications, reviews and book chapters. He is the principal inventor in over 50 patents. Abstract

This lecture describes the application of green nanotechnology in cancer therapy. Phytochemicals from Tea, various fruits and herbs possess powerful antioxidants with redox potentials capable of reducing gold and other metal salts to their corresponding nano particles. Our results have established that the phytochemicals serve dual roles of reduction and subsequent capping around nanoparticles to afford optimum in vivo stability as well as cancer cell receptor targeting properties.  The tremendous practicality of creating major oncological advances using green nanotechnological tools and also the power of this approach to connect traditional Herbal Medicine with Nanomedicine will be discussed.
