Muro Group

5141 Plant Science Building

The Muro Group focuses on developing means to target cells located at sites of disease in the body with nano-scale carriers that are able to use endocytic pathways, natural processes where cells engulf substances in their outer membrane and then bring the surrounded materials into their interior. Using analytical and biological tools, microscopy imaging and radioisotope tracing in cell and animal models, site-specific platforms are designed to facilitate the transport of the therapeutic agents with organ, cellular, and sub-cellular precision.
