Dr. Dean Ho's team is currently developing nanodiamond-based platforms for targeted chemotherapeutic delivery and nanodiamond-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) agents. His team has demonstrated marked enhancements to small molecule efficacy and safety in multiple drug-resistant tumor models. Ho's lab is also developing polymeric microfilm devices for localized release of multiple compounds.
