Recently published work by GT – BME grad student Shambavi Ganesh, her PI Prof. Ahmet Coskun, and MCF staff members Eric Woods & Walter Henderson centers on the use of ToF-SIMS to analyze biological materials.

Surfaces play an important role in almost all aspects of our lives. For example, biosensors that are used to detect and identify diseases are often based on chemical surface modifications. The interaction of small molecules or nanoparticles with surfaces such as lung tissue is also often dictated by surface chemistry. This means that it is critical to know as much as possible about a surface in order to both understand the interactions that occur and to be able to design surfaces that promote successful interactions.
