The Theranostic Nanomedicine Section is located in Building 9, room 1W11 with experimental work also performed in Building 10.

The laboratory is equipped to perform chemical synthesis of nanoparticles as well as modification and characterization with zeta-potential and dynamic light scattering (DLS) size analyzer (Horiba SZ-100), UV-visual spectrometer (Thermo Genesys 10s), fluorescence spectrometer (Hitachi F-7000 and Horiba FluorMax-4), alternating magnetic field induction heater (6.6 kW, Across International), thermal imager (FLIR SC-300), custom photoacoustic microscope, custom near-infrared and white light microendoscope and Raman spectrometer (BWTEK).

The lab includes microbiological and cell/tissue culture equipment with lyophilizer (Labconco), peptide synthesizer (CS Bio 336X), cell cytometer (BD Accuri C6), and microplate reader (BioTeck Synergy 2). The lab has a microscopy setup (Zeiss Axio Imager A2 upright bright-field microscope, Olympus X-81 epifluorescence microscope, and an Olympus Fluoview F10i-LIV automated confocal laser-scanning microscope).

In vivo work is done in collaboration with Biological Molecular Imaging Section with access to the PET-CT scanner (Siemens) and fluorescence and luminescence imagers (CRI Maestro II and IVIS Lumina II) and access to MRI and photoacoustic facilities in the NIH Mouse Imaging Facility (MIF).
