DeLouise Bio Nanomaterials Group
We manipulate materials on the micro, nano and molecular level scales to design biomedical devices for diagnostic, therapeutic and investigative studies of skin. Our multidisciplinary approach integrates experimental research and simulation to design devices that exploit the novel optical, morphological and surface chemical properties of nanostructured materials. Key focus areas include optical biosensing, microflulidic cell sorting and cell culture and nanoparticle skin penetration, skin imaging, translocation and targeted delivery.
