Our primary work concentrates on the detection of cancers. We developed novel dyes for photodynamic therapy that, in combination with nanoprobes, allow for extremely sharp quenching and unquenching in response to a very narrow pH range. Given that tumors have an acidic extracellular environment, nanoprobes are able to deliver precise, amplified signal that can assist a surgeon in a more unambiguous removal of the cancerous tissue.
