Nanobionic plant with carbon nanotubes can act as a photonic chemical sensor of metabolites and pollutants
Welcome to the Giraldo Lab!
We are developing and applying nanomaterial based tools to study and engineer plant physiological mechanisms at levels of organization ranging from organelles to tissues and whole plants. We are discovering how the distinct physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of nanoparticles affect their interactions with plant organelles and cellular structures. Using a plant nanobioengineering approach, we seek to turn plants into technology by enabling them with novel or augmented functions.
Honghong, Israel, and Greg will present their work at the CEPCEB symposium
Juan Pablo to give a keynote on Applications and Implications of Nanomaterials for Agriculture at ICEENN/CEINT 2018
