We design various functional polymer based nanomaterials for "analytical science" and "material initiated biology". The research in our laboratory is motivated by a desire to develop novel analytical methods and discover unknown biological phenomena by using function of polymer materials. We are also committed to training a new generation of material researchers and engineers. We believe a stimulating environment of our laboratory promotes the growth of creativity, autonomy, and adaptability of students.
