The main objectives of Dr. Jayagopal's research are to develop disease-specific imaging and drug delivery agents, and to identify molecular targets accessible by these agents for clinical applications in ophthalmology, oncology, and vascular medicine. The laboratory primarily utilizes nanotechnology-based approaches to interface drugs and/or imaging agents with diseased cells and tissues.

Current projects include:

- Nanoscale engineering of imaging and drug delivery carriers for improved functional capabilities

- Improved targeting and efficacy of gene therapy strategies

- Development of intracellular targeting strategies for imaging and drug delivery

- Molecular imaging of the retina using optical imaging agents
