On-Demand Cancer Therapy and Antimicrobials Triggered by Light

Project Investigator: Yang Qin

Project Description: The proposed projects aim to develop a set of small molecules that are intrinsically non-toxic but can be converted to mimicking the cytotoxic “warhead” found in some of the most cytotoxic natural products, triggered by red and near-IR light. If successful, these molecules can serve as new platforms for on-demand photodynamic cancer therapy and antimicrobials with high selectivity and applicability.
