Research Overview

Research efforts focus on gene and drug delivery: microspheres, emulsions, liposomes, hydrogels, as well as interfacial chemistry and implantable biosensors for glucose monitoring.

Plan to work with InCHIP and create a Biosensor Center for Health Intervention and Prevention (Bio-CHIP), a center for the development and application of biosensor-based e-health technologies. The main objectives of the center will be to: a) develop novel biosensors; b) study the applicability of such devices in obesity and related areas; and c) develop biosensor-based e-health packages.
