Research Projects

 For the past three years, I have been mainly focus on analyzing new drug (combined anti-cancer drug with optical tracer in nanoparticles) biodistribution in vitro and in vivo. The project includes measuring cellular uptake, cytotoxicity of the new drug, as well as the subcellular localization studies. Right now, I am working with in vivo model. Our group is working on how to translate the in vitro data we obtained to in vivo application. Building an imaging system combining with hyperthermia and testing on animal model would be the next step of this project.
