2D material nanostructures for antibacterial applications
Several types of photoactive 2D material nanostructures are developed and modified with nonnuclear and nuclear radiation.
Major goal is development of antibacterial medical grade polymer (PDMS, polyurethane, PVC) doped with nanoparticles.
Carbon nanostructures for nanomedicine
Induction or prevention of cell death is one of the most important approaches in the treatment of cancer, autoimmune/inflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders.
The main objective of this multidisciplinary effort is to investigate cytotoxic, cytoprotective and immunomodulatory effects of carbon based nanoparticles(graphene, nanotube, fullerene) and their derivatives, as well as intracellular mechanisms underlying the observed biological effects.
