Dr. Kaminski is interested in developed magnetic and non magnetic nano and microcarriers for targeted delivery of therapeutics and removal of blood borne toxins. He has been collaborating with The University of Chicago Medical Center clinicians including Drs. Axel Rosengart, Richard Kraig, Ravi Salgia, Bahktair Yamini, and others to design carriers for particular disease. Dr. Kaminski is designing biodegradable carriers composed of hydrophilic and hydrophobic plastics that can carry hydrophilic or lipophilic drugs. By means of incorporating magnetic nanocrystals into the plastic substrate, one can manipulate the physical position of the drug carriers to target organs, image their position by MRI, or physically remove them from the blood flow via an extracorporeal magnetic filter also designed by our group. He is pursuiing joint funding for the Argonne and UC team from DOD, NIH, and private companies.
