The main focus is the creation of a range of functionalised metallic nanoparticles which can be used for a variety of different purposes which include the diagnosis of disease and also the treatment of disease. This includes the chemical manipulation of the appropriate surface molecules and labels required to turn these metal nanoparticles into functioning nanosensors capable of detecting single molecules in complex environments using SERS. In addition, the mounting of therapeutic agents onto these nanoparticles has resulted in significantly increased performance of the drugs when tested against particular disease states.
