Functional Nanoparticle Bioconjugates for Biomedical Applications

Our laboratory develops nanoparticle systems for a variety of applications including imaging, sensing drug delivery, and control of cellular function.  This talk will detail several nanoparticle-bioconjugate systems we have realized for use in biology and biomedicine.  These include semiconductor nanocrystal systems for enhanced visualization in in vivo electrophysiology, imaging the developing nervous system, voltage sensing in neurons and enhanced drug delivery to drug-resistant cancer cells.  Additionally, the use of photothermal gold nanoparticles to stimulate neuronal cells will be discussed.


Dr. James Delehanty, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Biologist at the US Naval Research Laboratory, Center for Bio/Molecular Science and Engineering. His training is in molecular and cellular biology, with an emphasis on developing functional nanomaterials for biological applications. For the past fifteen years his laboratory has focused on engineering a variety of nanoparticle-bioconjugates for interfacing with mammalian cells for imaging, sensing, enhanced drug delivery, and control of cellular function.
