PhD Biophysics, 1994, Johns Hopkins University


Research Interests:

  • Nanomedicine
  • bionanotechnology

Nanomedicine and bionanotechnology. Members of this interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial laboratory apply principles of physics and other subjects to design, fabricate and characterize nanostructured, polymer-based biomaterials. Materials of particular interest are nanocoatings for cell and tissue culture, nanocoatings for medical implant devices, and nanostructures for combating cancer. Spectroscopic, acoustic and microscopic methods are used for physical and chemical characterization. Biological characterization is done by cell culture and other methods.
