The Williams Immune Nanomedicine Lab is in the Biomedical Engineering Department of the Grove School of Engineering at the City College of New York. The lab aims to design and translate nanomedicines relating to targets in inflammatory disease processes. Specifically, we are developing kidney-targeted polymeric nanoparticles as therapeutic tools for renal diseases and implantable optical nanosensor devices as diagnostic tools for cancer and other inflammation-driver diseases. The three primary facets of each project are 1) engineer and characterize novel materials, 2) use nanomaterials to address biological questions, and 3) translate nanomaterials to the clinic.
