iNBS Lab at The University of Mississippi
Welcome to the Interdisciplinary NanoBioSciences (iNBS) Lab at The University of Mississippi. Our lab employs an interdisciplinary approach lying at the interface of materials chemistry, bioengineering, and the biological sciences to discover and implement next-generation therapies.
Most of our projects overlap between two or all of the following disciplines.
“Smart” Drug Delivery
We design environmentally-responsive drug delivery systems to improve the therapeutic index of existing drugs or generate novel drugs against previously “undruggable” targets.
We develop materials to better understand the immune system and modulate immunity for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes.
We study the complex nano-bio interface with primary goals of improving nanotechnology performance, drug delivery efficiency, and therapeutic outcomes.
Our lab is primarily interested in three therapeutic applications: Cancer, Mental Health, and Women’s Health.
Our lab is housed in the Innovation Hub at Insight Park; home to a rich ecosystem of research labs, start-up companies, and industry at the University of Mississippi.
