Multiplex Detection of Cell Surface Markers using Plasmonic Sensors
out of 5 stars
21 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph M K Irudayaraj
Gold nanorod molecular probes (GNrMPs) were designed and fabricated for multiplex identification of cell surface markers in HBECs. Cells were probed directly using dark field microscopy integrated with a spectral imager for simultaneous detection of up to three surface markers. The...
Development of Highly Porous Large Polymeric Microparticles for Sustained Local Drug Delivery to the Lung
10 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Yoon Yeo
In this presentation, I will introduce a new way of making highly porous large polymeric microparticles recently developed in my lab. These microparticles exhibited desirable aerodynamic properties, reduced macrophage uptake, encapsulated a drug efficiently, and provided sustained drug release...
Functionalized Nanomaterials at the Interface of Biology and Technology
24 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dean Ho, National Center for Learning & Teaching in Nanosca
Nanomaterials, such as block copolymeric membranes and nanodiamonds, can be engineered for a broad range of applications in energy and medicine. This presentation will highlight the relevance of these materials as foundations for device fabrication across the spectrum of biology and technology....
KIST/PU Ligand-functionalized gold nanorods as theragnostic agents
06 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei
Plasmon-resonant gold nanorods have been examined as multifunctional agents for imaging and photoactivated therapies. Nanorods can be imaged with single-particle sensitivity by two-photon luminescence (TPL) when excited by fs-pulsed laser irradiation, and have been monitored in vivo while...
KIST/PU A bi-functional block copolymer hydrogels and micelles for protein and drug delivery
28 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Doo Sung Lee
Novel biodegradable & injectable poly(Î²-amino ester)-poly(Îµ-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(Îµ-caprolactone)-poly(Î²-amino ester)(PAE-PCL-PEG-PCL-PAE) bi-functional, pH/temperature-sensitive, block copolymer hydrogels were prepared and applied to protein and drug delivery. In this...

BME 695N Lecture 18: Designing nanodelivery systems for in-vivo use
12 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: James Leary
Outline:Overview – the in-vitro to ex-vivo to in-vivo paradigm In-vitro - importance of choosing suitable cell lines Ex-vivo – adding the complexity of in-vivo background while keeping the simplicity of in-vitro In-vivo - all the complexity of ex-vivo plus the “active” components of a real...

KIST/PU Design and Performance of Bioresponsive Nanocarriers with Tunable Reactivity for Drug and Gene Delivery
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Dave Thompson
Our lab has focused on the development of bioresponsive nanocarriers that are designed to release their cargo upon entry into acidic environments such as those found in cellular endosomes and sites of poor circulation. Computational methods have been used to design vinyl ether lipids of varying...
KIST/PU Phage Display Selection of Tissue-Specific Homing Peptides and their Theragnostic Applications
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Byung-Heon Lee
Several homing peptides that are specific to tumor cells, artherosclerotic plaques, stroke lesion, apoptotic cells and phosphatidylserine have been isolated by phage display in our laboratory. For example, the Bld-1 peptide is specific to bladder tumor cells and the AP-1 to atherosclerotic...
KIST/PU Tumor-Homing Chitosan-Based Nanoparticles for Cancer Theragnosis; Imaging, Drug Delivery and Therapy
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Ick Chan Kwon
We have prepared self-assembled polymeric drug carriers containing fluorophore and loaded drugs for theragnostic imaging of tumors. This new type of polymeric drug carriers visualizes the accumulation of carriers at tumor sites, and evaluates therapeutic efficacies, and thereby providing an...
Marital Relationships & Coping with Cancer
11 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Cleveland G. Shields
Breast cancer is one of the most prevalent forms of cancer in women. We conducted a cross sectional study of 77 women and their spouses coping with breast cancer. Both couples completed almost identical surveys. We hypothesized that couples who reported higher levels of criticism and avoidance...
