Bio-detection and theranostics based on multifunctional nanomaterials

For bio-detection (e.g. coronavirus) and cancer treatment, we have been focused on the development of ultrasensitive and multiplexed bio-detection based theranostic system and cancer immunotherapy. Multifunctional nanomaterials have been developed, which include, for example, a barcode library with ultrahigh encoding capacity based on novel encoding strategy and “immune-guide” nanomaterials, which have been applied to early diagnoses of diseases such as infectious diseases, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, and immunotherapy of tumor. Among them, the encoded microbeads and ultrasensitive bio-detection technique for high-throughput suspension chips and early screening and diagnosis of cancer have undergone extensive clinical trials and potential commercialisation.
