General Research Interest

Micro- and nano-sale biomaterials and systems for drug, gene, cell, and tissue delivery; energy-based thermo and cryo ablation or therapy

Research Description

The research in my lab has been focused on developing (1) novel micro and nano scale biomaterials and systems with great biocompatibility for improved drug, gene, cell, and tissue delivery and (2) energy-based approaches (using both cold and heat generated with microwave, radio frequency, laser, and ultrasound) for minimally invasive ablation of diseased tissue in situ. Our research has a variety of practical applications including but not limited to cancer treatment, transplantation, regenerative, and reproductive medicine. Our research in cancer treatment has been supported by the Wendy Will Case Cancer Fund and American Cancer Society (Research Scholar Grant).

Transinstitutional Work

We have been collaborating with Prof. Xiongbin Lu at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to develop combined approaches for improved cancer treatment.
