We are designing therapeutics using engineered nanomaterials, targeting pathological ECM of multicellular system such as biofilm and cancer. It will involve design, synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials such as carbon-based and inorganic nanoparticles, as well as application and evaluation of them in biological systems.
