About Me

Our group is interested in integrating concepts and skills from chemistry, materials science, and biology to design nano-structured materials with enhanced functionality for applications in biomedical implants, cancer diagnostics, and drug delivery. We are particularly focused on seeking a systematic understanding of the bio-activity of nanostructures and developing specific "structure-bioactivity" relationships. We believe that such a rational approach is necessary for systematically advancing nano-materials and biomedical technologies of the future.

We use nanotechnology as a tool to address questions in biomedical and biological disciplines. Nano-structures, due to their similar size scale as bio-macromolecules and cellular components, provide an unprecedented opportunity to target and potentially modulate important biological processes.
