Welcome to our group!

Our group is interested in using various nanomaterials as building blocks for constructing novel functional nano/mesoscale structures, with emphasis in applications for cell-biological studies. We focus on developing new synthetic strategies which will allow precise control over the property and functionality of the produced structures. Through the strong collaborative efforts ongoing in iCeMS, we aim to utilize such nano/mesoscale structures for probing and manipulating complex biological systems.
