Imagine using immune cells to deliver crucial wound-healing agents after a spinal cord injury, or using immune cells to deliver drugs past the blood-brain barrier to treat Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
These are the ideas that excite me about science the most. And from where I stand, I see so much promise and opportunity.
— Elizabeth Wayne
