The use of gold nanoparticles (AuNP) is one of the most promising areas in the development of new sensors due to their high surface area, size-dependent physical properties, and ease of synthesis and functionalization. Our lab is interested in using gold nanoparticles with different morphologies and functionalized for specific interactions for the development of biosensing/nanodiagnostics applications.

Since 2015, our lab belongs to UCIBIO@REQUIMTE, Research Group of "Functional Molecules & Nanomaterials"
