Our lab primarily focuses on

1. Biomaterials synthesis: Multifunctional and bioactive materials

 

- Synthesis of stimuli-responsive polymers including hydrogels

- Synthesis of polymer supports for peptide synthesis

- Conjugation of biosensing materials

2. Biosensor platform: Design of detecting biomolecules

- Detecting cell/tissue secreted molecules including proteases and nitrite ions

- Fluorescence-based single cell detection

- Developing hydrogel-based sensing methods

 

3. Solid phase peptide synthesis: Synthesis of therapeutic and cosmetic agents

 

- Solid phase synthesis (peptide and polymer precursors)

- Anti-oxidants and surfactants

- Protease and/or tyrosinase inhibitors

 

4. High Throughput Screening (HTS)

 

- One-bead-one-compound (OBOC) library synthesis

- Microbead array fabrication

- Finding new bioactive molecules
