Welcome to Nano-Bio Interface Group
The research interests of Bao’s group mainly focus on rationally-designed nanostructures (e.g. nanoparticles and nanoclusters) for simultaneous imaging and therapy. Specific projects include shape-controlled magnetic nanoparticles for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluorescent metallic nanoprobes for fluorescent imaging, and development of nanoplatform for targeted delivery of imaging agents. In collaboration with several faculty members in Biological Science Department, Bao’s research group has also made great efforts to understand the developmental and reproductive toxicity of iron oxide nanoparticles.
