Functionalized Nanomaterials in Medicine and Medical Devices

nanomaterials

Our research program employs functionalized nanomaterials in medicine and medical devices. It involves the development of animal models of kidney, cancer, and metal-related diseases (e.g., iron overload, hyperphosphatemia) and applying the nanomaterials to diagnose, prevent, or treat such diseases.

Research Areas:

  • Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF): A Rodent Model for Therapeutic Intervention
  • Orally Delivered Nanomaterials for Limiting Gut Absorption of Toxic Metals, Iron, Phosphate, and Radionuclides
  • Targeted Gene and Drug Delivery using Nanomaterials for Cancer Therapy.
  • Sorbent Hemoperfusion and Dialysis
  • Portable Metal Analyzers
