Our research centers on experimental cancer theranostics using novel nanomedicines and nanoprobes. We apply pharmacoengineering principles to develop nanomedicines to promote the delivery of anticancer drugs, cancer therapeutic vaccines, as well as nucleic acid gene therapeutics. We also develop nanoprobes and aptamers for sensitive detection of cancer cells and monitoring therapy responses.
