Protease-activated nanoshell therapy
This thesis describes the development of photothermal nanoshell therapy activated by proteases. Hirsch et al. previously showed that the optical spectrum of crosslinked nanoshells within the UV-visible range reveals a ...
Engineering magnetic viral nanoheaters for targeted hyperthermia treatment of cancer
Extensive investigations into the multifunctional nature of magnetic nanoparticles have sparked a burgeoning interest in their use for biomedical applications. The potential of abolishing cancer via externally induced ...
The use of a microelectroporator to study poration of Jurkat cells
A microelectroporation system was built to provide a well-controlled and defined environment for quantitative studies of electroporation, a method to permeabilize cell membranes for delivery of normally impermeable ...
