Research Expertise and Interest
nanotechnology, bio-inspired nanomaterials, synthetic viruses, regenerative tissue engineering materials, drug delivery vehicles

I am interested in bio-inspired nanomaterials and nanotechnology. We are developing new ways to fabricate high performance materials and devices through self-assembly processes by exploiting biological organisms such as viruses and cells. I am also interested in synthetic viruses which can be exploited as regenerative tissue engineering materials and drug delivery vehicles.

Researchers turn viruses into molecular Legos

UC Berkeley researchers have turned a benign virus into building blocks for assembling structures that mimic collagen, one of the most important structural proteins in nature. The “self-templating assembly” process they developed could eventually be used to manufacture materials with tunable optical, biomedical and mechanical properties.
