Research focuses on: Polymer Chemistry of Nanotubes; Dendrimer-Based Therapeutics; Covalent Functionalization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNTs); Supramolecular Functionalization of SWNTs; Dendrimer-Based Imaging Agents
Current research projects can be separated into two main areas, including the polymer chemistry of carbon nanotubes, and dendrimer-based therapeutics. In the former, both covalent and non-covalent carbon nanotube functionalization strategies are being explored, with a focus on producing functional materials that combine the properties of carbon nanotubes with those of other nano-scale structures. In the area of dendrimer-based therapeutics, the emphasis is on the development and investigation of simultaneous diagnostic imaging and drug delivery agents.
