Cytocompatibility of Hafnium Oxide Nanoparticle Imaging Probes Prepared Using a Novel Templated Synthesis

This work will be presented at MRS 2018 and at SFB 2018 Statement of Purpose: Hafnium oxide (HfO2) with a k-edge of 50 keV is being explored as a clinical X-ray contrast agent. HfO2 NPs are also in clinical trials as radiosensitizers that induce immune action against tumor sites.   However, the unpredictable stability of commercially …
