Tasciotti Lab

Astrocytes | Center for Neuroregeneration | Houston Methodist

Our research focuses on developing innovative nanotechnology platforms and biomaterials for drug delivery and regenerative medicine which include:


  • Applying nanoporous silica chip technology to the early detection of diseases and the real-time assessment of therapeutic efficacy
  • Developing novel materials for enhanced polymeric scaffold reinforcement
  • Synthesis and functionalization of theranostic nanoparticles for targeted cancer drug delivery and imaging
  • Modulation of the functions and properties of materials that promote cell survival and differentiation in tissue engineering
  • Creating unconventional multistage, multifunctional delivery vectors inspired by nature
  • Understanding the basic mechanisms of reaction of the cell to the exposure to and integration of nanoparticulates
