Verification of Ratiometric pH Sensing PHPMA-Derived Polymer in Human Neuronal Tissue Models.

Research Theme: Health
FURI: Spring 2020

Assessment of the cellular microenvironment is important to examine organ and cell function. The PHPMA-derived polymer can be used as in-line method to use pH levels to test the cellular and molecular function. These nanoprobes have been tested in different neuronal tissue models such as: neural progenitor cells (NPC) and 2D neurons. The nanoprobes will provide an effective solution to assess cellular microenvironment based on fluorescent color.

Development of Flourcent Siloxane Nano-probes as an In-Line Assay of Cell and Tissue Function

Research Theme: Health
FURI: Spring 2019

 A live method to test the functionality of cell culture and tissue is needed to assess the growth of cells for further in-line applications. Fluorescent oxygen sensing siloxane nanoprobes provide the opportunity to do so. The project aims to optimize the method of labeling different cell types and cultures, such as neural progenitor cells(NPCs), neurons, and microcarriers with the nanoprobes as an in-line assay of cell life and functionality. This may provide an alternative to live-dead end-line assays when engineering cell models of diseases.
