Scholarly Interests

I am investigating a series of nano- and microparticle systems (i.e. CdSe/ZnS-PEI and encapsulated CdSe/ZnS-PEI) at biologically relevant pH and temperature to assess differences in the cellular reaction to encapsulated versus unencapsulated materials. Endpoints to measure cellular metabolism and intracellular REDOX are employed to examine these differences. Confocal microscopy and electron microscopy are used to help visualize the resulting cellular orientation and trafficking of (or potential damage caused by) exposure to these material-types. Studies are also underway to probe potential nanoparticle-serum protein binding properties. My tests systems include dermal, lung, and colon cells and rat and pig test systems.
