Stable Nanodroplet for Medical Imaging
This technology improves on current nanodroplet technology that can be activated through ultrasound to form microbubbles for imaging or drug delivery. These novel nanodroplets have layers at the exterior shell making the droplets more thermally stable and capable of circulating in the body longer. The nanodroplets have unaffected ultrasound activation...

Molecular Imaging for High-Risk Carotid Plaques
This invention is a molecular probe that enables a non-invasive method for detecting vulnerable plaque in the carotid artery prior to its rupture. Background: Approximately 140,000 Americans die from stroke—these stroke-caused deaths occur every four minutes. Carotid atherosclerotic disease causes between 20% and 25% of all strokes. A carotid...

Phase Change Nanodroplet - Liposome Conjugates for Enhanced Drug Delivery
This technology utilizes phase-change nanodroplet-liposome conjugates to achieve targeted drug delivery of oncology therapeutics. The technology uses ultrasound to convert the nanodroplet into a gas, whereby this cavitation of the nanoparticles cases stress on the tight junction areas of the brain. The cavitation will temporarily make the blood-brain...
