We have explored the application of new supramolecular probes combining with nano-scaled materials in biomolecular recognition and highly-sensitive detection of diseases, such as cancer. We have found that selfassembly of the specific nanocomposites with the new molecular probes could provide a multifunctional interface for the highly sensitive intracellular redox sensing and rapid identification of diseased cells including cancer cells, with a broad detection range and low detection limit.
Laboratory instruction in sample preparation for and applications of quantitative microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and properties measurement in the context of structure-property relationships in materials.
Adapting the Precision Medicine Initiative into imaging research includes studies in both discovery and translation in order to enable the conversion of current radiological interpretation from that of the “average patient” to the precise interpretation and patient-care management decisions specific to the individual. The goal is to individually detect disease, and then give the right person the right treatment at the right time.
