Dr. Sunil Pandey
Dr. Sunil Pandey is actively working on plethora of biological precursors for synthesis of self passivated carbon dots and its application in imaging and drug delivery. In National Sun Yat Sen University, he is working on application of Mass Spectrometry and high resolution microscopy for quantifying crucial cancer biomarkers as well as stem cells patrolling in the blood during the early stages of cancer using genetically engineered mouse models.
Delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients to various organs including brain and their quantification using Matrix Assisted Laser Ionisation Desorption Ionisation-TOF MS and Capillary Electrophoresis is also one of the fields he is trying to comprehend. His team is also working on designing carbon-dots-metal complex for analytical application such as DNA helix transition studies, protein folding kinetics under biological milieu.
Dr. Sunil has worked on SPION mediated magnetic hyperthermia, semiconductor quantum dots and fluorescent carbon dots. His team was the first to synthesise carbon dots at room temperature under alkaline conditions and carried out its centrifugal separation.

M Shahnawaz Khan
M Shahnawaz Khan is currently a Post Doctorate in Dept of Chemistry, National Sun Yat Sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
He did graduate from the same university in Jan,2016 and undergraduate in Honors Industrial Chemistry and Masters in Industrial Chemistry from India’s prestigious university Aligarh M University, INDIA (2009).He is working on the hot topic like targeted drug delivery for curing cancer and employing photo-thermal method for releasing the drug at tumor region. He is concentrated on developing an effective method for wound control infection by using gold nanorods (Au NRs) and Nd-YAG laser (1064 nm) for photothermal killing Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria and simultaneously healing the wound infection on the (albino) mice. He is also curious to work on the brain diseases like Alzheimer, for it he synthesized the carbon nanodots and attached with Dopamine hydrochloride for efficient delivery to brain.
