Long Chiang, Professor, Chemistry; Center for Advanced Materials

A team of researchers from UMass Lowell, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School is applying nanotechnology to a light-based therapy that could someday help patients fight viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer cells.

The project, led by Prof. Long Chiang of UMass Lowell’s Chemistry Department and Prof. Mike Hamblin of Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Mass General Hospital, is funded by a four-year, $1.34 million award from the National Institutes of Health.
