Our research focuses on the development of fluorescent nanosensors for in vitro and in vivo analyte detection.  We have developed novel nanosensors, including an Ion-Selective Quantum Dot (ISQD) and a glucose -sensitive “tattoo”.  We are currently expanding our range of sensors into other areas, including redox-active species and small molecules.  For every application, we are dedicated to applying our sensors to real problems in biology and medicine.  We have built strong collaborations with investigators at Harvard University, BIDMC, Boston University, MIT and Tufts Medical Center in order to bring a team approach to these projects.
