Testing Nanoparticles for Biomedical Imaging and Therapy
Students will be involved in preparing nanoparticles for biomedical applications and performing imaging, nanotoxicity, and photodynamic therapy experiments. In particular, students will be directly involved in modifying the surface of nanoparticles with biocompatible polymers and functional groups as well as photosensitive drugs. They will also have the opportunity to take part in two photon and fluorescence imaging of nanoparticles in cells as well as nanotoxicity experiments of nanoparticles in cells.
