Currently, gold nanoparticles employed in biomedical applications use sulfur–gold linkages to protect the GNP from decomposition and enable targeting of cancerous tissues. However, this linkage is vulnerable to oxidation, resulting degradation & loss of selective targeting. To address this issue C2MCI is developing robust, oxidation-resistant carbon-based ligands, resulting in remarkably improved stability and novel luminescence properties. Our research will be transformative for hard-to-treat cancers and will dramatically improve outcomes for radiation therapy in cancers with high mortality rates, such as pancreatic cancer, melanoma, and renal cell carcinoma.
