Welcome to the Nanomedicine and Medical Acoustics Laboratory!

The Nanomedicine and Medical Acoustics Laboratory (NanoMedAL) was founded in 2006 by Dr. Tyrone Porter in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University. The mission of the lab is:

  • To advance current understanding of acoustics, especially in regard to medical applications.
  • To develop stimuli-responsive colloids (i.e. sensitive to changes in pressure, pH, or temperature) for diagnostic and therapeutic applications
  • To provide rigorous education and training in multidisciplinary engineering research, spanning biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, acoustics, and nanotechnology.
