My research focuses on the development of novel biomedical micro- and nanoscale technologies for fundamental and translational applications. Major areas of emphasis in my lab include regenerative medicine, cell and tissue reprogramming, and drug and gene delivery. We are exploring the use of micro- and nanoscale technologies for therapeutic applications in a miriad of conditions, including cancer, diabetes, stroke, nerve injury, and Alzheimer's Disease.
The Precision Nanomedicine Lab is focused on developing and implementing novel nanotechnologies that can be easily interfaced with living systems at the cellular, tissue, or organ level, to gain more insight into specific pathophysiological processes, or to deliver preventive or corrective therapies to injured or diseased cells, tissues, or organs. Tissue Nano-transfection (TNT), an example of such technologies, is currently being further developed by my lab for potential applications in the treatment of diabetes, certain neurological conditions, and cancer.
