An article co-authored by Qun “Treen” Huo is featured on the cover of ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. The article, entitled “Different Interaction Modes of Biomolecules with Citrate-Capped Gold Nanoparticles,” contains analysis that could lead to new biomarker discovery with diagnostic applications.

Huo holds joint Appointments in the NanoScience Technology Center and Department of Chemistry and a secondary appointments in the Burnett School of Biomedical Science and Department of Mechanics, Materials and Aerospace Engineering.

Huo’s research group specializes on the development and use of gold nanoparticles for biomedical and bioanalytical applications. Their innovations incluce a nanoparticle-enabled dynamic light scattering assay (NanoDLSay™). The group has collaborated with researchers from UCF’s College of Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, and Florida Hospital Cancer Institute on projects related to prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and pancreatic cancer detection and diagnosis.
