Research Interests

Iverson’s research focuses on the use of carbon nanotube sensors to determine intercellular and intracellular signaling associated with quiescent and diseased cells. Current research is focused on the delivery of the carbon nanotube sensors to small animal models for long term reactive nitrogen species detection.
