Research Interests:

Within the Magnetics Lab in the Department of Physics and Astronomy we are developing magnetic nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery and the detection and treatment of cancer. Investigations as a function of particle size and saturation magnetization are being carried out on polymer coated nanoparticles to understand the role these play in establishing effective MRI contrast agents and the ability to locally heat cancer cells for hyperthermia treatments. Drug delivery studies focus on the functionalization of the nanoparticles with bio-molecules and their manipulation with magnetic field gradients.
