Biomimetic materials, nanoscale self-assembly, gene delivery

Our general theme is to engineer functional biomaterials from a molecular-scale perspective so as to control self-assembly or molecular recognition.  Many of these efforts focus on various contexts of cell-material interactions which are relevant to drug/gene delivery and biocompatibility.

 

Research Interest

Potential Application

Self-assembly at interfaces

Controlling cell migration

Programmable assembly with DNA

New approaches to gene delivery

Engineering viral capsid surfaces

Probing the surface of immune cells
