Summary:

Attribute to their unique size-dependent optical, electronic, or magnetic properties as well as their superior colloidal stability and bio-compatibility, nanoparticles have broad application in precision medicine. This presentation will summarize our recent progress in the synthesis, characterization, surface coating and bioconjugation of nanoparticles including nanophosphor, nanomag, magbeads, and nanogold , as well as their biomedical applications such as drug delivery, vaccine, in-vivo imaging, in-vitro diagnostics, sample preparation for next-generation sequencing. The technical challenges and possible solutions in these areas are also discussed
