  • Areas of Interest Bioplasmonics, Nanomaterials, Biophysics
  • Research Areas The main research areas in the Reinhard Laboratory
    are Bioplasmonics, Nano-Bio Interface and Materials Science. We develop
    plasmonic nano-scale probes to probe, control, and reverse-engineer
    biological functionality. We are particularly interested in elucidating the
    fundamental principles that govern cell-nanoparticle interactions, spatial
    regulation of signaling, and biomimetic energy harvesting systems.
