    27 Oct 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen Boppart

    The diagnostic, interrogational, and therapeutic potential of molecular nanoprobes is rapidly being investigated and exploited across virtually every biomedical imaging modality. While many types of probes enhance contrast or delivery therapy by static localization to targeted sites, significant...

  5. Illinois BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2011: In vitro Cancer Metastasis Driven by Elasticity of Micro-environment

    27 Oct 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Xin Tang

    Cancer deaths are primarily caused by metastases, not by the parent tumor. However, the physical-chemical mechanisms and parameters within the cellular micro-environment that initiate the onset of metastasis, are not understood. Here we show that human colon carcinoma (HCT-8) cells can exhibit a...
