Functionalized Nanomaterials in Medicine and Medical Devices


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
