Nanobio Engineering Laboratory

Morrill Hall, 45 Lower College Road, Kingston, RI 02881

In the NanoBio Engineering Laboratory, we develop, characterize, and implement functionalized carbon nanotubes for bioimaging and biosensing applications. We use a variety of imaging, spectroscopy, and other analytical techniques to investigate the interactions between these engineered nanomaterials and biological systems. Our specialized near-infrared fluorescence hyperspectral imaging system enables the collection of emission spectra from single carbon nanotubes within live cells. With a fundamental understanding involving these types of nanobio interactions, we aim to construct highly robust bio-analytical probes while simultaneously mitigating toxicological concerns.
