Poster #33: Katelyn Pyper – Testing of Split-beta-Lactamase Constructs for Therapeutic Application

Faculty mentor: Shawn Owen

The primary goal of targeted drug delivery is to reduce negative side effects associated with existing drug treatments for diseases like cancer. Previous targeted drug delivery methods have failed to eliminate side effects associated with premature activation of cancer drug away from the target site. The aim of this research is to produce, purify, and test the functionality of split-beta-lactamase constructs to activate drug only at the targeted tumor site.
