    Welcome to Laboratory of Nano-Bio Interactions! Our mission is to contribute to the understanding of the Nano-Bio Interfaces, using multi-disciplinary approaches, for safe use of magnetic nanoparticles (e.g. superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs)) as theranosis agents. In addition, the Lab is seeking to set nano-safety standards.  Our model nanoparticle is SPIONs! Why SPIONs?!?! Due to their ultra-fine size, magnetic properties and biocompatibility, SPIONs are emerging as promising candidates for various biomedical applications, such as enhanced resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), targeted drug delivery and imaging, hyperthermia, magneto-transfections, gene therapy, stem cell tracking, molecular/cellular tracking, magnetic separation technologies (e.g. rapid DNA sequencing), detection of liver and lymph node metastases. In addition, their most recent applications for early detection of inflammatory, cancer, diabetes and atherosclerosis increased their popularity in academia.  Their superparamagnetism is particularly useful in applications such as externally guided drug delivery since removal of the external magnetic field prevents agglomeration and subsequent embolism.
