Polymer conjugated near-infrared fluorescent probes for in vivo imaging

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Over-1000nm near-infrared (OTN-NIR) fluorescent probes have recently attracted significant attention as in vivo fluorescence bioimaging agent, due to the high permeability of NIR light in this wavelength region for living tissue. In the past decade, I designed and reported various polymer conjugated OTN-NIR fluorescent probes such as rare-earth doped ceramic nanoparticles and organic dyes for deep tissue in vivo fluorescence bioimaging. This paper describes recent progress in research into the use of polymer conjugated fluorescent probes for OTN-NIR fluorescence in vivo bioimaging, most of which has been performed by our group.
