Nanomaterials especially functional inorganic nanomaterials exhibit a range of unique inherent physical and chemical properties useful in biomedicine. Starting from 2009, our research group has been working on the development of functional nanomaterials including sp2 carbon nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes and graphene), rare earth up-conversion nanoparticles (UCNPs), and composite nanostructures for applications in multimodal biomedical imaging, drug and gene delivery, as well as novel photo-therapies of cancer. In the mean time, we have also devoted considerable efforts to investigate the biological effects and toxicology of various inorganic nanomaterials at both cellular and animal levels. In this talk, I will focus on the photo therapy applications of various functional nanomaterials, including functionalized nano-graphene, UCNPs, and their nano-composites, for in vivo multi-modal imaging-guided cancer treatment.
