Research in my laboratory will aim to develop innovative and advanced solutions to treat human disease through a highly multidisciplinary approach. We are interested in manufacturing novel molecular probes using small molecules as well as nanoparticulate systems for imaging disease processes and therapeutic applications. Particular emphasis is on activation of therapeutic events in targeted tissues with a high degree of spatiotemporal precision and control using photons and ionizing radiation. We involve the entire bench-bedside spectrum of chemical biology research, from bio-chemical probe synthesis to their evaluation in cell systems and animal disease models, including development of microfluidic and lab-on-chip approaches for optimization. The eventual goal is to bring together diverse yet complimentary technologies to develop useful technology platforms for basic science and clinically translatable work.
