Our goal is to create protein engineered biomaterials for dual drug delivery and MRI monitoring to improve the growing field of theranostics. Here we present a drug binding protein that is templated to USPIOs using a biomineralization-inspired biotemplation method. The agent shows promise for T2/T2*-weighted MRI.
