Immunotargeted NIR Contrast Agents for Cancer Imaging
In this project, the unique optical properties of CBEN nanomaterials, described both here and in nanomanufacturing, are leveraged to develop innovative contrast agents that can be optically interrogated using noninvasive approaches and targeted to specific molecular signatures of disease. In addition to continuing to move forward with efforts focused on imaging applications of nanoshells, which were the predominant focus during the first 5 years of CBEN, the range of nanomaterials worked with has been expanded to take advantage of Theme 1 efforts.
