Professor Reed's research program falls at the interface between nanoscience and medicine. The first focus of his research is on nanoparticle-lipid conjugates as membrane mimics. The second is on nanomaterials for phototherapeutic applications and the third is utilizing artificial Intelligence, informed by computational chemistry, to predict what genetic patterns cause some people to be harmed by the drugs that are meant to help them.
