The BioNanophotonics Lab welcomes new graduate student, Kevin and Shensheng!
Yang gives an invited talk at Single-Molecule Sensors and nanoSystems International Conference 2019 (S3IC), Munich, Germany. Thank you Frank Vollmer for the invitation!
Yang gives an invited seminar at University of Illinois at Chicago’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Thank you Pai-Yen Chen for the invitation!
Miniaturized gold nanorods are reliable NIR-II photoacoustic agents, showing higher photothermal stability, enhanced photoacoustic signal and more efficient agent-to-tumour delivery compared with their larger counterparts. This research is now published on Nature Nanotechnology!
Yang gives a colloquium talk for the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Materials Science Department. Thank you Jian Shi and Ravishankar Sundararaman for the invitation!
We are hiring!
Prospective lab members should email a CV that summarizes their research skills and interests to Prof. Yang Zhao
We currently have one position opening for postdocs. Candidates in the fields of biophysics, biomechanics, molecular biology, and atomic force microscopy are preferred.
We are actively looking for exceptionally qualified graduate students with a background in Electrical Engineering, Bioengineering/Biology, Materials Science, and Physics/Applied Physics to join our lab.
We welcome UIUC undergraduates who are interested in gaining research experience in the areas of biophotonic devices, microscopy, nano-optics and nanophotonics. Please note that we generally discourage short term projects (single semester) since there is a significant amount of training required prior to participating in one of our research programs. Students, who are interested in long-term (two semesters or longer) intensive research projects, are highly encouraged to contact Prof. Zhao.
