Areas of Expertise

The Xie Lab is interested in nanoparticle technologies. We engineer electrolyte-, polymer-, protein- and cell-based nanoplatforms that aim to solve unmet clinical needs. In particular, we are focused on developing novel nanotechnologies for cancer drug delivery, radiotherapy, imaging, and immunotherapy. Projects include salt nanoparticle therapeutics, X-ray induced photodynamic therapy, cell-based drug delivery, magnetic nanoparticle contrast agents, nanoparticle-based immunotherapy, and nanoparticle radiosensitizers.
