Our lab aims to design and synthesize multifunctional biomaterials/nanodrugs for medical applications, with a focus on the nanorepair medicine in the injury of bone, major organs (e.g., liver, kidney, lung, bowel, etc.), and skin.
We are interested but not limited in:

  • Exploring the Interactions Between Biomaterials and Biological Tissues;

  • Developing Techniques for Diagnosis and Treatments of Diseases;

  • Propelling the Commercialization of Technological Achievements;

Highlighted Researches:
