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 precision therapy
  • Biomimetic materials that engineer the human microbiome
  • Bio-nanotechnologies for cardiovascular theranosis
  • Nanotherapeutics for site-specific immunomodulation
