ISIC Memento- Conferences and Thesis

Engineering Graphene Quantum Dots for Bioapplications prof. Anton V. Naumov


With: Dr. Anton Naumov received his B.S. in Physics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where he started his nanotechnology research working on separation of chiral carbon nanotubes. He received his M.S. and Ph.D in Applied Physics from Rice University, where his research was focused on optical properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene. He worked at IBM and Honda Research Institute exploring optoelectronic applications of nanomaterials. After his Ph.D. Dr. Naumov joined Ensysce Biosciences Inc. as a Research Scientist and a complimentary Postdoctoral Fellow at Rice, working on the development of nanomaterials-assisted cancer therapeutics. Later on, he joined Central Connecticut State University as an Assistant Professor. In 2015 Dr. Naumov has joined TCU, where he continues his work in applied biophysics and nanotechnology as an Associate Professor of Biophysics. Naumov lab Is focused on developing biological Imaging, drug delivery and sensing applications of Graphene Quantum Dots. This research explores novel treatment avenues with CRISPR-Cas9 and siRNA gene therapeutics, whole body animal imaging and nanomaterials-driven photothermal therapy. Naumov lab synthesizes new nanomaterials and uses those to image, detect and develop treatment for such conditions as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and bacterial infections.
