We synthesize silicon-based nanomaterials and study their fundamental chemical, electrochemical, photophysical, and
nanomedical properties. We have a focus on mesoporous nanostructures, in particular porous silicon. Research projects
emphasize controlled delivery of protein, nucleic acid, and small molecule drugs, in-vitro and in-vivo imaging with luminescent
silicon quantum dots, and chemical/biochemical sensors. We have strong collaborations with medical doctors interested in
nanotechnology-enabled approaches to treat cancer, bacterial and viral infections, and diseases of the eye.


Prof. Sailor's book "Porous Silicon in Practice" is available from Wiley-VCH or from Amazon.com
