CNM Research One Pager: Nanoscale Shunts for Treating Glaucoma

Read about Dr. Ian Pitha’s work to create shunts by spinning fibers 1000 times thinner than a human hair that can release medication to prevent the formation of scar tissue after glaucoma surgery and can change diameter over time to control intraocular pressure.

Congratulations, Dr. Qingguo Xu and Dr. Gregg Duncan!

Congratulations to CNM's own Dr. Qingguo Xu and Dr. Gregg Duncan for receiving the 2018 Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award!

From 2013 to 2017, Qingguo worked at the Center for Nanomedicine as a research associate and since 2017 has been an assistant professor on staff. His research has focused on improving our knowledge of biological barriers to drugs and foreign body immune responses to biomaterials within the context of disease physiology. He has also been working on cutting-edge nanotherapeutic-based treatments for ocular (eye) disorders, cancer, and other diseases.

From 2014 to 2017, Gregg worked at the Center for Nanomedicine as a postdoctoral fellow focusing his research on designing new inhaled nanomedicines to fight lung disease. Recently, he has begun shifting his research toward a new potential for nanoparticles as a tool not only for drug delivery, but also for diagnostics.
