Research Interests

Biomedical application of nanotechnology is one of the most promising ways for developing new drug delivery strategies, improvements in diagnosis and overcoming crucial limitations in disease treatment normally faced in clinical trials.  Nanotheranostic has been considered as a more efficient therapeutic strategy than common drug treatments. Our current research focuses on the development of new nanocomposites based on gold and iron nanoparticles, nanorods, and core-shell nanostructures toward multifunctional platforms for tumor cells targeting, drug delivery, gene delivery, and cancer theranostic therapy. Remote controlled release systems responsive to external stimuli such as light, pH, ROS, ultrasound and electric field were also studied to achieve efficient drug/gene release.
