BRI Seminar entitled “Engineering targeted Nanoparticles and antibodies for molecular imaging and th
ABSTRACT A major goal of my research program is to develop novel molecular imaging agents and targeted therapeutics. In particular, we are (i) developing new nanoformulations that are capable of carrying extremely high payloads of radiosensitizers and/or contrast agents; (ii) investigating new targeting strategies that maximize specificity and sensitivity; (iii) developing new bioconjugation techniques that enable the highly efficient, site-specific attachment of targeting ligands to Nanoparticles and (iv) developing a new platform to rapidly produce bispecific antibodies.
