Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs), commonly referred to as superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) have been well studied and have demonstrated advantages such as ability to be imaged, induce local hyperthermia, and be actively targeted due to their intrinsic magnetic properties.
We are studying:
- MNP enhanced drug delivery through biological barriers
- Magnetically triggered drug delivery
- Design of new MNP types
