Overview
Laboratory for Nanoengineering & Drug Delivery - Our research involves a highly interdisciplinary combination of nanotechnology, biomaterials, drug delivery, and immunotherapy. In particular, we are interested in the development of innovative biomaterials and nanoparticle platforms for safe and effective delivery of biomacromolecules (e.g., siRNA, mRNA, and protein) and for biomedical research and applications.
