Tackling Problems at the Cellular Level
Biomedical research at the nano-level opens a wide range of possibilities for diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease.
Our collaborative work in this area includes initiatives with polymeric biomaterials, nucleic acids, microfluidics, medical devices, and other tools that offer valuable information at the cellular level. Future disease treatment using approaches on the nanoscale could include a more tailored and personalized approach, enabling the use of lower and more effective drug dosages.
Current departmental projects in this area include microfluidics, nanodevice fabrication, drug delivery methods, smart materials, and more.
