RCMI Nanotechnology and Human Health Core

Director: Ponce-Pedraza, Arturo, Ph.D.

Summary:

The Nanotechnology and Human Health Core is part of the RCMI program at UT San Antonio. It focuses on the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials for imaging, labels for bioassays, and active targeting for in vivo or in vitro diagnostics. The Core studies the interaction of nanoparticles with living cells for application in the targeted delivery of drugs, genes, and proteins; tissue engineering scaffolds; artificial organs and implants; and bioimaging and cell labeling. Additionally, the Core supports development of new advanced characterization methods to study biological tissue using nanoparticles and advanced electron microscopy techniques to produce three-dimensional structural information for imaging cell membranes, organelles, and other subcellular structures.
