Jianghong Rao Lab In the Departments of Radiology and Chemistry

Paul Robert Neumann

I am a visiting PhD student in the department of radiology at Stanford. I am doing my PhD at the Martin-Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg in Germany. My aim is to apply polymers and nanotechnology concepts in order to make a contribution to the development of effective nanomedicines for diagnosis and treatment. I am working on biocompatible, biodegradable conjugated polymer nanoparticles for in vivo imaging applications. 

In the future, the development of these intravesical diagnostic nanoparticles could enhance visualisation during surgical resection.

The current project in Prof. Raos Lab assesses the in vitro and in vivo photoacustic properties of a core-shell nanoparticle formulation containing a conjugated polymer. During my free time at Stanford I am playing Squash and enjoy to be part of the Stanford wine society.
