Composite materials for bone & tissue reconstruction
InventorHoon Choi, I-Wei Chen ProblemMaterials used for bone transplants and as scaffolds for tissue restoration need particular features to work well. Current materials have shortcomings that complicate treatment. Dried silica gels are very attractive because of their nanometer-sized pores, but they lack larger pores that exist in natural bo...

Ruthenates with Large Magnetoresistance
New materials with large magnetoresistive effectsInventorI-Wei ChenProblemMagnetoresistive materials can change their electrical resistance when subject to an applied magnetic field. This property can be used for non-volatile resistance switching memory in which high and low resistance states are used to encode data. A similar effect called EPIR (e...

pH Sensitive Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery
InventorDr. I-Wei Chen http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~iweichen/Technology OverviewMany agents used for oncology are either vulnerable to enzymatic attack or are poorly water-soluble, making them difficult to deliver to a tumor site. This invention describes a novel pH-sensitive peptide-based nanoparticle which can provide a precisely targeted method fo...
