Nanoparticles in Skin

Research Overview

The focus of this research involves digital image processing of gold nanoparticles that have been imaged by means of two-photon microscopy. Signal processing concepts relevant to image processing are being employed to parameterize how these nanoparticles behave in the early diffusion stages of human skin. It is of great hope that the conclusions of this research will help lie a foundation that will contribute to metallic nanoparticle analysis of images acquired from two-photon microscopy, particularly as applied for nanoparticles diffusing into human skin.

Research was completed by Andy Bongo and Casey Marques in 2011. For more information, contact Yogesh Patel.
