Nanomedicine is an interdisciplinary field bringing together scientists from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Medicine, and Engineering who are synthesizing, stabilizing, and functionalizing nanoscale materials with those who are studying ways to improve the detection, prevention, and treatment of human disease. Researchers at Georgia Tech are using gold nanoparticles, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles, fluorescent quantum dots, and carbon nanotubes to study ovarian cancer, circulating tumor cells, inflammatory bowel diseases, and targeted drug delivery.
Blended Research @ the Library is a panel discussion series focusing on multidisciplinary research. At each session faculty and graduate students from various departments present research in an area that crosses over several disciplines.
