Research from lead author, Peng Si, PhD, a basic life research scientist in the de la Zerda Lab, has been featured on the inside cover of Nano Letters. The article, "Gold Nanobipyramids as Second Near Infrared Optical Coherence Tomography Contrast Agents for in Vivo Multiplexing Studies", describes first-in-class contrast nanoprobes that enable optical coherence tomography (OCT) to visualize multiple biological processes simultaneously in the second near-infrared window, allowing light to penetrate much deeper in tissue compared to other imaging windows.
