We design various functional polymer-based nanomaterials for "materials initiated biology", including mechanobiology, mechano/thermo-genetics, and liquid-liquid phase separation research. The research in our laboratory is motivated by a desire to develop novel analytical or manipulation methods for discovering unknown biological phenomena and exploring innovative nanomedicine by using polymer nanomaterials. We are also committed to training a new generation of material and biomedical researchers and engineers. We believe a stimulating environment of our laboratory promotes the growth of creativity and autonomy of students.
