Teaching Interests

Research Interests – Smart Molecules for Imaging, Targeting, and Health (SMITH)

The work in this laboratory is multidisciplinary and encompasses organic synthesis, molecular design, biophysical methods, fluorescence microscopy, and animal imaging. As a result, the students receive broad training and the individual research topics are quite varied. Current topics include:

  • Fluorescent and Chemiluminescent Probes for Animal and Cell Imaging
  • Optical Imaging of Bacteria
  • Optical Imaging of Cancer
  • Membrane Biophysics
  • Squaraine-Rotaxanes as Novel Near-IR Dyes
  • Unusual Interlocked Molecules
  • Molecular Machines
