The work in this laboratory is multidisciplinary and encompasses organic synthesis, molecular design, biophysical methods, fluorescence microscopy, and animal imaging. As a result, the students receive broad training and the individual research topics are quite varied. Current topics include:
- Fluorescent and Chemiluminescent Probes for Animal and Cell Imaging
- Optical Imaging of Bacteria
- Optical Imaging of Cancer
- Membrane Biophysics
- Squaraine-Rotaxanes as Novel Near-IR Dyes
- Unusual Interlocked Molecules
- Molecular Machines
Generally, the research group numbers around ten people and always includes some undergraduates and postdocs. For more information about group members see the Smith Group Home Page.
