Research Interests

My research interests involve 1) using nanoparticles as means of detecting disease through molecular imaging and treating disease with drug delivery for cardiovascular disease (Atherosclerosis), cancer, and inner ear detoxification (for hearing loss), and 2) treating cancer such as melanoma and leukemia via hyperthermic effect of gold nanoparticles, and 3) exploring and understanding the role of extracellular vesicles (exosomes or EVs) in tumor metastasis, inflammation disease, brain injuries, and neurodegenerative disorders. For my research projects, there are several different fields such as chemical synthesis (e.g. nanoparticle synthesis), polymer chemistry (e.g. surface chemistry on nanoparticles), cell study as an in vitro study (e.g. toxicology, cellular uptake), and animal study as an in vivo study (e.g. biodistribution, targeting, diagnosis, therapy).
