Welcome to the Laboratory for nano-Neural Therapeutics (nNT).

The focus of our research is to develop nanotechnology-based strategies to assess and repair the central nervous system after injury or tumor. With the use of biomaterials, drug delivery systems, and biomedical imaging, we are interested in repairing the damaged microenvironment so that severed connections can be reformed to improve functionality.
