Professor of Nanoengineering, University of California San Diego

Our research aims to create cutting-edge biomimetic nanotechnologies and exploit them to study and solve complex biological problems that are associated with human diseases. One major research goal is to overcome the various therapeutic barriers in the treatment of cancer and antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection. We also seek to understand the fundamental sciences at the interface of nanomedicine and biology. Overall, our research program covers a broad scope of multidisciplinary areas including chemical & biomolecular engineering, materials science, chemistry, nanotechnology, biotechnology and medicine.
