The Bionanotechnology Laboratory focuses its research on fabricating various nanoparticles for drug delivery and vaccine development.  The research group also assembles various biomolecules around nanoparticles for enhanced immune responses and targeted drug delivery in cancer treatment. The group uses a trans-disciplinary approach by integrating biomolecular engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, and immunology to achieve its goals.  The laboratory is equipped with:

  • Fisher Scientific CO2 incubator
  • Malvern Zeta-Sizer (Nano-ZS)
  • Eppendorf bench-top centrifuge (5810R)
  • Fisher Vortex (Genie 2)
  • Branson water bath sonicator (1510)
  • Fisher Scientific sonic dismembrator (Model 500)
  • Olympus Microscope (CKX41)
  • Virtis freeze-dryer (FreezeMobile 12SL)
  • Fisher Scientific isotem freezer
  • Labconco biological safety cabinet
  • Techne hybridizer HB-1D
  • Strategene® Robocycler Gradient 40
  • Strategene® Robocycler Gradient 96
  • Fisher Scientific homogenizer (PowerGen 700)
