Nano-bio-imaging and Devices Laboratory

About the Lab

At the Lal Nano-bio-imaging and Devices Laboratory, we have two large thrusts in basic science and enabling technology development centered on our expertise in multiscale imaging and mechanics  with atomic force microscope (AFM). In parallel, we specialize in nanosensors and devices, including controlled on-demand theranostic delivery

In the past we have used the AFM-based multi modality imaging and functional mapping to study protein misfolding, cell-cell and cell-surroundings interactions. We also hope to further improve upon AFM design and application. By these efforts our goal is make AFM a common-place technology useful in the study of normal and pathophysiology, formation of preventive strategies, and characterization of therapeutics among other things. Recently we have expanded our capabilities in nanomaterial based carriers for biological applications
