Precision Therapeutics and Bioresponsive Materials Laboratory

The Precision Therapeutics and Bioresponsive Materials Lab develops new biomaterials and drug delivery devices for precision medicine, with the goal of rapidly translating these technologies into the clinic to improve human health.

Current research focuses in the lab include:

  • Stimuli-responsive drug delivery systems for targeted therapy
  • Theranostic macro- and nanomaterials
  • Nanotherapeutics for site-specific immunomodulation
  • Biomaterials to control the human microbiome for regenerative medicine
