The biophysics of intracellular transport driven by structurally-defined systems of motor proteins
The number of motor proteins attached to cellular cargos is widely believed to influence intracellular transport processes and may play a role in transport regulation. However, to date, investigating the biophysics of ...
Mie and Finite-Element Simulations of the Optical and Plasmonic Properties of Micro- and Nanostructures
A Mie-based code is developed for multilayer concentric spheres. The code is used in conjunction with a finite-element package to investigate the plasmonic and optical properties of micro- and nanostructures. For plasmonic ...
Modulating Gold Nanoparticle in vivo Delivery for Photothermal Therapy Applications Using a T Cell Delivery System
This thesis reports new gold nanoparticle-based methods to treat chemotherapy-resistant and metastatic tumors that frequently evade conventional cancer therapies. Gold nanoparticles represent an innovative generation of ...
