Research Summary

Dr. Bao’s research areas of interest include biomolecular engineering, molecular imaging, molecular biomechanics and bio-nanotechnology, and cancer and viral infection detection. Along with Lily Yang of Emory University, Bao is developing a new method of detecting pancreatic cancer. The team, together with students, designed a biosensor called a molecular beacon, which uses a single strand of DNA and a fluorescent dye to seek out cancer cells.
