Current Research

I actively pursue pharmaceutical research in nanomedicine that focuses on polymeric assemblies for multi-drug delivery and fluorescence optical imaging in oncology. A major goal of my research is to selectively “light up” tumors for surgical guidance and treat residual tumor tissues as a theranostic (therapy + diagnostics) treatment of ovarian cancer.
