Visible to the public A Cyber-Physical Framework for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Guided Magnetic NanoParticles


The goal of this project is to study the fundamental principles (dynamics and control) in using clinical magnetic techniques for accurately guiding agglomerations of magnetic nanoparticles in targeted drug delivery. The innovative technology component of this study is the dual use of the magnetic techniques as an imaging modality for both diagnostics and feedback control signal purposes and as a propulsion modality that generates the control forces to accurately guide agglomerations of magnetic nanoparticles.
