Kris’ research focusses on the development of polymer and nanoparticle-based devices for nanomedicine. His work spans the fields of chemistry and materials, biology and imaging science to probe how nanomaterial properties affect their function in living animals. Of particular interest is the development of novel materials as multimodal molecular imaging probes for theranostics.
