Micro- / Nano-Particle Targeting and Biological Activation

Micro/nanoparticles are a convenient platform to deliver therapeutics or perform biological assays. We are utilizing micro- and nano-particles to control the activation of the immune system. We have created a new type of microparticle called the biological Janus particle, which we are using to simultaneously target cells while activating immunological signal pathways to create a new class of antimicrobial agent.
