The Department of Nanomedicine at The Methodist Hospital Research Institute in Houston, TX is co-directed by Drs. Alessandro Grattoni, Jason Sakamoto, Rita Serda, and Ennio Tasciotti. The Department focuses on inter-disciplinary research to combine nano-engineering, mathematical modeling and biomedical sciences to develop nanotechnology enabled therapeutic and diagnostic platforms for combating diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infectious diseases.
Our ongoing research projects include:
