    • A Plasmonic Gold Nanostar Theranostic Probe for In Vivo Tumor Imaging and Photothermal Therapy. 

      Liu, Yang; Ashton, Jeffrey R; Moding, Everett J; Yuan, Hsiangkuo; Register, Janna K; Fales, Andrew M; Choi, Jaeyeon; ... (16 authors) (Theranostics, 2015)
      Nanomedicine has attracted increasing attention in recent years, because it offers great promise to provide personalized diagnostics and therapy with improved treatment efficacy and specificity. In this study, we developed ...
    • Plasmonic gold nanostars for synergistic photoimmunotherapy to treat cancer 

      Liu, Yang; Chorniak, Ericka; Odion, Ren; Etienne, Wiguins; Nair, Smita K; Maccarini, Paolo; Palmer, Gregory M; ... (9 authors) (Nanophotonics, 2021-09-02)
      Cancer is the second leading cause of death and there is an urgent need to improve cancer management. We have developed an innovative cancer therapy named Synergistic Immuno Photothermal Nanotherapy (SYMPHONY) by combining ...
    • Plasmonic Nanoparticles and Nanowires: Design, Fabrication and Application in Sensing. 

      Vo-Dinh, Tuan; Dhawan, Anuj; Norton, Stephen J; Khoury, Christopher G; Wang, Hsin-Neng; Misra, Veena; Gerhold, Michael D (J Phys Chem C Nanomater Interfaces, 2010-04-29)
      This study involves two aspects of our investigations of plasmonics-active systems: (i) theoretical and simulation studies and (ii) experimental fabrication of plasmonics-active nanostructures. Two types of nanostructures ...
    • Synergistic Immuno Photothermal Nanotherapy (SYMPHONY) for the Treatment of Unresectable and Metastatic Cancers. 

      Liu, Yang; Maccarini, Paolo; Palmer, Gregory M; Etienne, Wiguins; Zhao, Yulin; Lee, Chen-Ting; Ma, Xiumei; ... (9 authors) (Scientific reports, 2017-08-17)
      Metastatic spread is the mechanism in more than 90 percent of cancer deaths and current therapeutic options, such as systemic chemotherapy, are often ineffective. Here we provide a proof of principle for a novel two-pronged ...
    • Time-Resolved Synchronous Fluorescence for Biomedical Diagnosis. 

      Zhang, Xiaofeng; Fales, Andrew; Vo-Dinh, Tuan (Sensors (Basel), 2015-08-31)
      This article presents our most recent advances in synchronous fluorescence (SF) methodology for biomedical diagnostics. The SF method is characterized by simultaneously scanning both the excitation and emission wavelengths ...
