Geoffrey Bothun Professor Chemical engineering

Bothun’s research on nanoparticles holds potential application in both the medical and environmental fields. Through funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) his research group is creating and testing nanoparticles that can target cells infected by a disease or virus and give them the necessary medicine for treatment.

A liposome sample is being created using a rotary evaporator. The glass flask is partially submerged in a water bath and the plastic beads reduce evaporation from the bath. Liposomes are used as templates for synthesizing nanomaterials.
