Radio Opto Nano

Radio Opto Nano

Creating precisely controlled interactions

The group's research overlaps among radiological sciences, optical techniques, and nanomaterials. Members develop cutting-edge techniques in nuclear (SPECT and PET) and functional X-ray imaging (X-ray fluorescence CT, X-ray luminescence CT). Working with radio-induced drug activation and excitation and therapeutic delivery processes within deep tissue is paving the way for new innovations in cancer therapies.
