Areas of Research


Our group is interested in the application of nanotechnology to biomedicine.  These applications include nanotoxicology, multiple biomolecular binding, membrane dynamics, pain transduction, and degenerative retinal disease. We utilize a wide variety of biophysical and spectroscopic techniques in our research, including: fluorescence correlation and cross-correlation spectroscopy (FCS/FCCS), confocal microscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and transmission electron microscopy/scanning electron microscopy (TEM/SEM).
